It’s really amazing how animals can sense when someone’s in trouble. This is especially true for dogs, who possess this ability of detecting subtle changes in the mood of their owners and those around them. That is the reason why these noble creatures make great service animals who assist people with disabilities.
A quick-thinking Staffordshire Bull Terrier named Max helped in saving a 14-year-old girl’s life by running away from his owner and leading him to the 60-foot-cliff where the young lady was seen sitting. The moment George Conner, Max’s human daddy, noticed his dog was acting strange, he knew it was a warning that something wasn’t right. He followed Max to the spot known as a home of several suicides over the years.
The dog stayed by the girl’s side until the police arrived making sure she was fine all along. No one really knew how much time she had spent sitting there, but judging from her condition and the fact that her body’s temperature was getting low, it was quite a lot.
“It’s anyone’s guess how long she had been up there. She was sitting on a part of the cliff where, if she had passed out and fallen, she would have died.”
“A police officer came up to me and said, ‘you’ve saved her life,’ but I said, ‘no I didn’t, it was Max who found her.’”
“He’s got a great temperament and is a very friendly dog who is always ten steps ahead of the game,” Conner said. “If I’m ever ill he always notices. I don’t know if I would have found her without him.”
