When one UK man saved a rescue dog’s life by adopting him and making him part of the family, he never imagined that the dog would return the favor tenfold.
In 2012, Andy Szasz and his wife Estelle adopted a schnauzer-poodle mix named Teddy from a shelter. “Ted is such a remarkable little dog in many ways. He’s clever, loving, loyal, funny and a right little character,” Szasz said about Teddy, who helped give him the strength to beat bowel cancer.
So when Andy was placed in a medically induced coma earlier this year after developing a bad case of pneumonia and stopped breathing, Estelle thought it might help to bring Teddy to the hospital. After getting permission from Andy’s doctors, Estelle brought Teddy in for a visit. Once Teddy was by his best friend’s side and started barking, Andy miraculously started to wake up.
“I always tell people I rescued Ted and Ted rescued me. “We certainly do have a special bond,” Szasz said about his incredible companion, who was recently honored with a special award by the UK’s Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA).
