It is often stories of dogs saving members of their family, during a fire for example, which are relayed. The one that follows is different. When Toffee realized that the birth of a foal was going wrong, she alerted her owner.

Dogs, in addition to being great everyday companions, can become our heroes.

On a farm in the town of Tappen, British Columbia, Toffee performed a remarkable deed. A little before 2 a.m., the quadruped appeared in Marie Hurley’s room , barking. “ I jumped out of bed, she looked at me, and she walked down the stairs, then out into the yard,she told Global News .

The female Boerbull took her owner to a mare who had just given birth. “ I saw the mare had had her foal and was making a horrible noise, so I ran and saw that the amniotic sac hadn’t torn, ” said Marie Hurley . The newborn was choking.
