Dogs are known as observant and intuitive. They can sense things before they even happen. So when your dog shows some not normal behavior, it may be giving you a warning about something.
Just like how Keola saved its owner and warned her when she was pregnant.
Keola is an Akita Inu and its owner, Alhanna Butler, is from Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Alhanna’s friends advised her to get rid of Keola when she was pregnant for the safety of the coming baby.
But Keola and Alhanna’s bond is strong and fortunately, Alhanna did not get rid of Keola. If ever she did, it will be a bad ending for Alhanna and her baby.
Alhanna had been complaining of back pains for weeks. She decided to go to the hospital but the doctors dismissed it and concluded that it is just normal pregnancy symptoms. The doctors said that it is just her being small and her spine cannot carry the extra weight.
However, Keola can sense that something is not right with its fur mom. It keeps on nudging Alhanna and did not leave her alone, it even waited for her outside when she was in the bathroom.
This behavior exhibited by Keola is strange.
“Keola looked so sad and I knew something was bothering her. She just sat there staring at me and wouldn’t let me go anywhere alone.” Alhanna said. Eventually, Keola’s whining has done something and Alhanna finally decided to go to the hospital.
When Alhanna reached the hospital, she fainted and was admitted right away to the intensive care unit. IT was found out that the back pain she had been experiencing that the doctors have dismissed as just normal pregnancy symptoms were caused by a double kidney infection.
“On top of that, I had an antibiotic-resistant bug that had only ever affected one other person in the UK.”, Alhanna added. Doctors told her that she can die and the baby inside her if she did not make the trip to the hospital at that time.
“I have absolutely no doubt that both me and Lincoln would not be here today if it wasn’t for Keola,” she said.
Thanks to the adorable Keola, its fur mom, and her baby were safe and are all alive today.
“She is our hero, his guardian angel and we will forever be in her debt. We were both over the moon and we realized that Keola was truly a special dog who could detect things that we couldn’t.”, Alhanna happily said.
