Dog leads owner to elderly, unconscious Minn. man
Wednesday, January 13, 2010

Police credit a 15-year-old German Shorthaired dog with saving the life of an elderly, unconscious man in Pine City. Brett Grinde said he took Effie out for their usual walk on Monday evening, but within a couple minutes she started pulling on the leash, wanting to go in a different direction.

Effie then took off running, leading Grinde to a neighbor's house where a 94-year-old man was on face down on the driveway. The dog started licking the man's face. Grinde called 911, then started CPR.

KARE-TV reported the eldery man, William Lepsch, regained consciousness and is in serious condition at North Memorial Medical Center.

Wow! I like news like this. It goes to show dogs are made of things we only halfway understand. But they are pretty smart!

Hopefully the dog will get an award, and a steak dinner, for his good work.
