UPI – An Ontario dog is being hailed as a hero after she stopped traffic to get help for her owner, who was suffering from a seizure.
Haley Moore of Ottawa said she was walking her dog, Clover, through her family’s Stittsville neighbourhood last week when she had a seizure.
“All I remember is waking up in the ambulance and being really confused; just like what is going on,” Moore told CTV News.
A neighbour’s security camera filled in the blanks in the story, showing Clover checking on Moore before running into the street to stop a passing truck.
“It was really impressive, the dog actually blocked my way. She kind of backed into the road to block my truck,” said Dryden Oatwa, the driver of the truck.
Another passing driver, Danielle Pilon, stopped to help, and Clover then ran off back to her home.
“You could tell she didn’t want to leave her even when we were with her but I think it just came to her that she was like ‘I need to go home to let them know she needs help,'” Pilon said.
