A dog named Clover is celebrated as a hero by the Canadian media for helping her human, Haley Moore, survive a seizure that suddenly struck her while out on a walk.
Moore was strolling through the Stittsville neighborhood of Ottawa on Tuesday when she grabbed it and fell on the curb. CTV News reports.
The incident was captured by a neighbor’s security camera.
Clover, a year and a half old Maremma mix, stepped into action and tended to Moore first before jumping out onto the street and stopping the traffic.
Dryden Oatway, a driver who stopped thanks to Clover’s exploits, said, “It was really impressive, the dog actually blocked my way. She kind of went back on the road to block my truck.”
Clover stopped another driver and then returned home.
“All I remember is waking up in the ambulance and being really confused, just like, ‘What’s going on?'” Recalled Moore in an interview with CTV. The cause of the attack is unknown.
Moore’s father, Randall Moore, told CTV that Clover was fed delicious steaks as a reward for her faithful service.
Psychology Today reported In March, new research suggests that dogs that predict seizures are aided by the smell of volatile organic compounds excreted during seizures.
