How A Stray Dog Saved A Woman’s Life


This is an incredible story about a woman who was saved by a dog. The wonderful part of the story is that the dog did not even belong to her. The story starts off:

This incredible video highlights the story of Shannon Lorio, a 36-year-old woman from Georgia, whose life was saved by an unlikely source, a stray German Shepherd roaming alongside a country road.

On that fateful day, Lorio hopped into her car to escape a particularly upsetting argument with her husband. She found herself speeding down a twisty rural highway nicknamed “NASCAR Road.”

The speed at which she took the second curve caused her to lose control of her car.  It fish-tailed and violently flung her through the back window. She laid unconscious, the top half of her body on the trunk of her car, legs draped across the back seat and her car too far for other drivers to see.

When she finally regained consciousness, she was confused, trapped, injured and afraid of dying.

“All of a sudden, I felt a presence–a really huge presence,” Lorio recalled.

This interesting story continues…

When she came to at the hospital, she was told she had an intracranial hemorrhage, which could have killed her. If the dog hadn’t been at the right place at the right time and with the right nature, she likely wouldn’t be here today.

As for the dog, he experienced a miracle, too. He got a new name (Hero!), a new home and a new job. Heidy Drawdy, a canine search and rescue trainer heard his story, adopted him and has been developing Hero’s natural abilities; he is enthusiastically learning wilderness rescue.
