Gracie is a lovely 11 years old dog but when Violante adopted the dog from a pet rescue organization, she had no idea the dog would ever save someone’s life.
That all came from a bark that Violante had never heard before. She didn’t know, it was Gracie’s way of telling her something was not right.
Violante and dog Gracie live together in an independent community in Wake Forest, North Carolina.
Ball is a 92 years old blind man with health issues .He had fallen into the ground after losing his balance and was unable to stand.
When dog saw him lying there, she immediately took action to get her owner’s attention.
Violante quickly called 911 for the old man,but luckily old man he only suffered a few cuts and a bruise on his back.
There was no one in the yard other than dog Gracie, It’s safe to say that little Gracie is a heroine and that her barks are finally useful.
Ball showed appreciation for Gracie with treats, and a thank you note that read, “Dear Gracie, thank you for the great emotion you made yesterday warning the humans I needed help: you are mine hero!
I am honoured to be your friend. Come see me from time to time.
Gracie visiting Ball regularly to check on him.
