Family Dog Alerts Owners When 9-Week-Old Baby Stops Breathing
More from Pets
PORTLAND, Conn. — A Connecticut family says they've always loved their dog, but that adoration has reached a whole new level after the pup helped save the life of their infant daughter.
Jenna Brousseau said their dog, Duke, jumped up on her bed Sunday night and woke up her and her husband with its shaking.
She said that's completely out of character for the mixed-breed dog that the couple adopted six years ago, so they knew something was wrong right away.
They went into the nursery to check on their 9-week-old daughter, Harper, and found her not breathing.
Brousseau's husband called 911. Paramedics were able to revive the baby, and she's doing fine.
Now, the family has nothing but praise for Duke.
"He's the perfect dog. He was meant to be ours, and meant to be hers. I tell him all the time, 'You were born in mommy's heart,' just because he was so meant to be ours. He's heaven. He's a good boy," Brousseau said.
The family said they wanted to share their story because they are hoping to inspire others to adopt dogs in need like they did.
