Dog ‘prevents owner from committing suicide’A pet owner in France was reportedly prevented from committing suicide by her dog after it decided it was not yet ready to see her go.
The 63-year-old female decided to end it all in her back yard in Sorgues but her German shepherd apparently had a different idea.
In desperation the loyal pet reportedly did what anyone else who loved her would and collided with the elderly woman in an attempt to get her to drop the gun.
‘[The dog] probably sensed things and knocked into her to save her,’ a police officer said.
The woman suffered a chest wound but was not seriously hurt and should make a full recovery.
But it seems the dog has been negatively affected by its owner’s actions, just as many people who have dealt with the attempted suicide of a loved one are.
Let’s hope the heroic mutt gets over its problems.
