Last September, Brian Myers adopted Sadie, a German Shepherd, from a New Jersey shelter, giving her another chance at life. Four months later, Sadie did the same for him. While home alone, Myers suffered a stroke; he collapsed to the floor and was unable to get up or reach his cell phone. “Sadie sat by his side, like [by] his face and cried for him. She knew he was in distress,” said Heather Centrella, office manager at the Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge. That’s when Myers grabbed ahold of Sadie’s collar and she dragged him across the floor to where his cell phone was. Sadie is the only reason Myers was able to call for help. Now recovering in a rehabilitation center, Myers called the animal shelter to tell them how Sadie saved his life.
