Many people who have lived with dogs will tell you that their lives have changed for the better since adopting their furry friends. After all, our dogs know us better than anyone else and can always make us smile or provide comfort when we need it the most. Studies have even shown that there are very real health benefits that come with having a pup around the house such as a reduced risk of heart disease and lower stress levels. We know that dogs can improve our lives in these ways, but some dogs even go a step above and beyond.
Dory the Saint Bernard became quite the hero after sniffing out a gas leak in her family’s home. Knowing that something was not right, Dory instinctively knew to alert her human parents to the potential danger in the house. This brilliant pup refused to let them return to bed and helped guide her dad to the stove burner that had accidentally left on low.
Thanks to Dory, this family avoided a near catastrophe – now that’s a true super pup!
