Germanshepherdlova I totally believe the story. One day my hubby was cutting the grass and I was teaching my daughter how to ride a bike, as I ran along her bike I tripped and both of us fell to the ground. I hurt my leg and was having difficulty standing back up-my GSD was in our fenced backyard-he went CRAZY when he saw us fall-he barked and jumped at the fence and my husband who could not hear a thing because of the lawnmower noticed Brutus' behavior and that alerted him to look around-that's when he saw that we needed help. Dogs (many) know when someone is hurt and needs help.

When I lay on the floor my dogs all come and pile on me too. They think it's free lovin' time. If I ignore them, they normally lay next to me and nap.

A couple years back my heart beat got stuck in over drive. I collapsed on the floor in my living room. The exact same spot I would lay in front of the TV with the dogs. My GSD went bonkers and was mouthing me and digging at me with his paws. My doxie kept attempting to bury herself under me. My Golden, who stays outside 24/7 and NEVER wants to come in, kept trying to plow his way through my daughter (who was trying to get the dogs away from me and outside).

She ended up having to crate the GSD. He would not settle and continued to throw himself against the sliding glass window in an attempt to get back inside with me.

All behaviors they had never displayed before or since. Do I think the dog was trying to drag her to the road? I say it could happen. The injured person was displaying abnormal behavior and smells.

I think since the SAR group adopted the dog to work, they had to have found something usable in the dog. SAR dogs aren't a dime a dozen.

blackshep Oh Baillif!! lol

I think if he wanted to eat her, he wouldn't have spent precious energy dragging her all over the place, he'd have just chowed down right where he found her. lol

Cute story, they are amazing animals for sure

Baillif She seems like the type that claims she was abducted by aliens too. I got a distinct i need attention and aliens probed me vibe.

selzer A 45 pound dog does not drag a 160 pound hunter all the way out of the woods and up to his back door all the time. The guy wasn't stumbling along, he was on the ground being dragged, according to the story. And English Setters are not known for their brilliance.

I agree though, that it does seem like extraordinary thinking for a dog to drag the woman to the road.

Dogs don't just comprehend a situation like that and drag people to a road for rescuing. I'm calling bs on this one.

Could be. But, dogs are smarter than we think they are. And they sometimes do things you wouldn't imagine. Like the dog that followed the 2 year old onto the roof and kept herding him back from the edge, or the family mutts who followed the toddler out of the house in the winter and were all over him all night to keep him warm so he wouldn't freeze, or the English Setter (hunting line which is generally about 45 pounds (we had one), and it dragged its owner home when he had a heart attack. Now, all these dogs were acting to save a family member, but I'm sure if we raked our memories we can find stories where dogs actually did something heroic for a stranger who was totally helpless or in need. I mean Babsy tried to mother a baby mouse. And other bitches have been known to mother other orphans. I don't see it as impossible.
