You can become a hero regardless of size, and a chihuahua named Bubu is the best confirmation of this.
The smart dog saved his owner’s life when he had a stroke, and now the whole world knows about him.
US Navy veteran Rudy Armstrong, 86, was on a houseboat when he felt unwell.
“I sat in a chair, drank coffee, and came to my senses after dinner. I couldn’t even get up: my arm and leg didn’t move,” the man told the doctors.
Realizing that he was having a stroke and would not be able to reach the phone to call for help, Armstrong looked closely at the dog Bubu and said: “Go get Kim, get me help.”
The dog realized that this was a well-known foreman of the dock, who worked in the neighborhood. And soon the dog returned with help.
The dockmaster called an ambulance, and Armstrong was taken to the hospital.
Now the man is recovering from a stroke, and the doctors, touched by his story, arranged for him to meet Bubu.
Photos of their reunion were shared by East Carolina Rehabilitation Hospital workers on Facebook.
“Rudy is very grateful for the care he has received here, but he is not a fan of our turkey sausage,” they said of the patient’s condition.
“We thank him for serving our country and for allowing us to share the story of Bubu, a miracle -puppy!”
