An elderly woman, who wound up in a pond in Lawrenceville, Georgia, was rescued after a woman’s pit bull successfully alerted her to the concerning situation. According to NBC4i News, Bruce, (named for the super hero Batman) could sense that something was amiss earlier this month and he did his utmost to get his owner’s attention.
Abby Leathers told the news agency, “He had started emoting and whining, just being very loud at the front door. So I was like huh, this is kind of weird.” Leathers took the hint and let Bruce outside to see what was wrong. The intuitive dog ran directly to the water and Leathers followed – there, she found an elderly woman, scared and cold in the pond water.
The woman was helped out of the water and wrapped up in a blanket while Leathers phoned the authorities – it turns out that the elderly lady’s family was searching for her. Thanks to Bruce’s spot-on canine instincts, the woman was saved and reunited with her family.
Good boy Bruce!
