Dog rescued from a shelter heroically saves baby's life

– Little baby stopped breathing in the middle of the night, and the hero dog Duke was the one who alerted parents

– The family adopted Duke from a shelter six years ago

– Now if it wasn’t for him the couple’s little daughter had been already dead

The Brousseau couple of Portland, CT, adopted Duke the dog from a shelter six years ago. Now he saved the life of 9-week-old Harper.

“He’s insanely obedient so this was extremely bizarre,” Jenna Brousseau told WFSB. “If Duke hadn’t been so scared, we would have gone to sleep.”

Unnerved by their dog’s behavior, they went in to check on their baby, Harper. She wasn’t breathing. “My husband called 911 and the ambulance came here and it was because of our Dukey dog, who alerted us,” Jenna added

Somehow Duke discovered the baby was not breathing or at least having difficulty, and this made him very scared, so scared he had to rush to his pet parents’ bed to seek comfort — and alert them.

 “He’s the perfect dog, he was meant – meant – to be ours, said Brousseau. “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.”

Paramedics revived Harper and took her too the hospital. Today the baby is fine. Thanks to the dog and the doctors.
