UK Yorkie from West Yorkshire Barks and Barks to Help Save Neighbor
A Yorkshire Terrier has been praised for raising the alarm after an elderly neighbour collapsed in her garden in the dark.
Brian Hullah, 62, said he had no idea how his five-year-old dog Bella knew Rita Butler had collapsed but he said if the dog had not alerted him she could have been there all night.
Mr Hullah said Bella, usually a quiet dog, started barking in the kitchen at about 9pm on Sunday.
He said: “She was going a bit berserk. She’s usually pretty quiet, so we thought there must have been a cat or something out there.
“I opened the door and she shot out and she was running up and down the side of the fence barking.”
Mr Hullah said his stepson Andrew White went through the gate into their neighbour’s garden and found the pensioner, believed to be about 80, laid on the ground under some bushes.
How could the dog possibly sense something was wrong with a neighbor?!
