Brittany met the dog through a friend who works at a fire station in Calgary.
A homeless mongrel who was adopted there gave birth to eight puppies.
Brittany and her friend called the rescue team to come and pick up the babies.
However, two puppies were missing by the time she arrived.
It turned out that curious dogs were hiding in the bushes.
Instead of calling rescuers again, Brittany and her friend decided to keep the puppies for themselves.
The woman named her fluffy baby Roscoe. Little did she know then that the dog would repay her kindness a few years later.
That day, Brittany decided at the last minute to go hiking in the mountains.
However, her father Brian decided to skip the trip as he felt tired.
He stayed at home with their dog Roscoe.
Brian lay on the bed and watched football on TV.
When the man tried to get up and go to the bathroom, he realized that he could not move the left side of his body.
Brian rolled off the bed and fell. At that moment, he realized that he had a stroke.
As Brittany’s father lay on the floor, he tapped his right foot to call Roscoe.
When the dog ran up, Brian grabbed his collar.
Roscoe dragged his owner to the corner of the bed, so he could grab onto the bracket and help himself up.
Brian called 911 on the cell phone that was on the bed cover.
When the paramedics arrived, Roscoe already knew what to do.
Brian grabbed his collar again, and the dog ran to the door and dragged the man behind him.
It’s amazing how the dog was trained to be a rescue dog!
For this act, Roscoe was included in the Purina Animal Hall of Fame.
