Shannon Lorio crashed her car on a rural road in Georgia. Her life was in danger, but she received help from an unlikely hero.

 As she lay in her wrecked vehicle, a stray dog approached from out of the woods and came to her aid.

The dog kept her awake and pulled her out of the car, dragging her over 100 feet back to the road. She was able to flag down a passing car before she collapsed unconscious.

 After saving Shannon's life in 2010, the stray dog was taken to the Humane Society where he was adopted by canine search and rescue trainer Heidy Drawdy. He was appropriately named Hero.

In the video below, Shannon recounts the events around her rescue by Hero that fateful day. (Source)

*5 to 7 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year.
*3 to 4 million dogs and cats are killed every year because shelters are too full and there aren’t enough adoptive homes.

    I do believe Angels come in many forms, and this Dog is one of them..
    May the dog and her live a long and peaceful life..

  6. Animals do have "a purpose" and this dog surely knew what his was and still is! All animals are wonderful, though like humans...some are better or nicer or more capable than others. This Hero has my heart, for sure!!! Eden Cross, Animal Communicator

    Glad to hear Hero went to a place where he will be working. Nothing drives a dog to be bad than being bored. Especially if he is a working breed. How wonderful for Shannon to have a four legged savior. Bless them both.
