Brian adopted 6-year old Sadie, German Shepherd, from a shelter in New Jersey. Sadie had trust issues, which made her difficult to place with a new family. Brian said he felt a connection to Sadie and was determined to earn her trust.
Brian was home alone with Sadie when he had a stroke and fell. He couldn’t move to get to his phone to call for help. Sadie licked Brian’s face to keep him awake and pulled him to his phone.
