A Georgia man says he owes his life to the persistent barking of his neighbor’s dog.
Tony Dagnino, of Johns Creek, was repairing his car when it fell on top of him, WSB reported.
Dagnino’s neighbor, Emily Truong, who owns a boxer mix named Rudy, heard her dog barking from her upstairs bedroom of her suburban Atlanta home.
Dagnino was unable to call for help and figured he was unable to last for much longer, but thanks to Rudy, he got everyone’s attention.
He suffered from a broken collarbone and a broken rib, but the doctor told him that had Rudy not been there to save him, he may well have lost his life.
