Dogs are known for being loyal companions, but one Argentinian dog is making headlines for what he did when his owner was knocked unconscious and had no one around to help.
Earlier this month, Jesus Hueche was doing yard work around his home in Bahia Blanca, but was left unconscious after he fell six feet out of a tree he was pruning and cracked his head on the pavement below. No one else was home besides Hueche’s four-legged best friend named Tony, who immediately ran out and saw his owner was badly injured.
Thanks to Tony’s barks, neighbors spotted Hueche lying on the pavement and immediately called for an ambulance. And as they waited, neighbor’s were amazed to see that Tony refused to leave his owner’s side. And even when the EMTs arrived, Tony stood close by to make sure that Hueche was in good hands, and even tried to climb in as they loaded him in the ambulance.
Once at the hospital, doctors determined Hueche sustained slight skull trauma and treated him for his injuries before releasing him to go home and return to his worried dog. “He goes everywhere with me and lies in my bed until my wife kicks him out,” Hueche said. “One day we saw him on the street and adopted him, gave him love, food and is part of our family. For me he’s like a son.”
