The family dog Duke came from an orphanage in Portland, Connecticut. Duke is not happy living in the orphanage, yet he ends up being the perfect friend for his family.
Six years later, Duke is thanking Broseau in the most considerate way imaginable!
Harper, the family's new baby daughter, has just been brought home when Duke develops a strong protectiveness over his sister.
The family was sleeping peacefully one night when suddenly Duke entered his parents' room and jumped into their bed.
He was trembling uncontrollably and defiantly ignoring all directions. His mother finally realized that something wasn't right.
The room of a nine-week-old baby, where Duke led his parents and told them there was a baby who wasn't breathing at all.
They took the baby to the emergency room, where the doctor intervened just in time to save Harper's life!
Duke finally relaxed after making sure his sister was healthy and breathing normally.
Thinking of what might have happened if Duke didn't remember her in time made the family shudder. They will always be grateful for their child who saved them even though he had no idea he was a hero!
We hope Duke's story will encourage more people to adopt these brave and dedicated rescue dogs!
