Two labradoodles are being hailed as heroes after their animal instincts led to the rescue of an elderly woman who was lost outside in the snow.
Eva and Adam first woke up their human owners at 4:30AM on Saturday morning when they began tugging on their clothing and begging to go outside.
Confused by their pups’ unusual behavior, Susan and Lonnie Chester opened their front door to let the dogs outside. Before they could even fully open the door, however, Adam and Eva raced outside and led the Chesters to an older woman who was dressed in nothing but a night gown.
The senior, who looked to be in her late 80s, was sitting in the snow near the Chesters’ truck.
“She looked up at me and said, ‘I’m so cold,’” Lonnie told MLive. “I have no idea how long she had been out there. She must have been terrified.”
Lonnie took the woman inside, covered her in blankets, and called 911. Shortly after emergency crews showed up at the house, the senior’s family also arrived on the scene to help escort her to the hospital for medical treatment.
According to the National Weather Service, temperatures in Norvell Township, Michigan were as low as 9 degrees Fahrenheit (-12 degrees Celsius) this weekend.
“We’re just so proud of our dogs knowing they may have saved a life. I hope this serves as a wake-up call for everyone, especially with it being so cold out,” Susan told MLive. “It could have been a tragic outcome had Adam and Eva not woken us.”
