A dog in Ottawa, Canada, is being hailed a hero after she blocked traffic to get help for her owner, who was nearby in the midst of a seizure. As reported by NBC News, the dog’s heroic actions were caught on video when the frightening situation unfolded last Tuesday.
When owner Haley Moore had an unexpected seizure and collapsed during a walk, her dog, Clover, first stopped to see if she was okay, and then she walked to the middle of the road and blocked the first vehicle that approached.
The driver of that vehicle, Dryden Oatway, could see that there was a problem and he quickly sprang into action. Oatway tells CTV News:
It was really impressive, the dog actually blocked my way. She kind of backed into the road to block my truck.”
The whole time she was backing down the street she had eyes on Hailey; didn’t look away from her. She kept her distance from me but made sure her owner was okay and that was amazing,”
Clover also caught the attention of other neighbors in the vicinity and soon, an ambulance had arrived to help Moore. It is unclear what caused her seizure, but she is comforted to know that Clover will be there for her if something happens again.
Good job Clover!
