Pit bull saved owner from gas leak

Pit bull broke out of home and led police back to save her owner from gas leak

This week, a clever pit bull in Tuckahoe, New York, managed to save her owner from a potentially deadly gas leak. As reported by CBS New York, Sadie broke out of her house on Wednesday and went running through the streets, “barking up a storm.”

Her antics garnered enough attention for the police to respond. But when officers attempted to capture her, she took off running – right back to her home. It was there that officers discovered an open door and smelled gas.

Sadie’s owner, Serena Costello, doesn’t know with absolute certainty that her dog went looking for help, but she does suspect that to be the case. She told the news agency, “I don’t know. I want to say bringing them here. What else could it be.”

Inside of the house, evidence of Sadie’s desperation to get out were present – a door showed where she had frantically scratched at the wood. Ultimately, the 11-year-old dog figured out how to nudge the glass slider open.

Good girl Sadie!

    What a wonderful dog Sadie is and I am sure her pet parent will give her extra treats for saving her life. Great to hear stories like this.

    We never know what our pets will do, in this case it’s apparent that Sadie is a hero and saved her owner’s life!

    I had a pit bull who was a hard core ANGEL, and a genius, to boot. So completely non-violent, he would not even bite a person or another dog to protect himself, and yet he had no fear. He saved me three times, once from a sexual predator at a campground, once from a rattlesnake, and also from a strong-arm robbery at the hotel where I worked. And he did it ALL without resorting to biting. He used some muscle to push the sexual predator away from me, though. He passed in 2016, and I miss him terribly.
