A homeless German Shepherd noticed the woman and came running to help.
Shannon Lorio cries every time she remembers that fateful day when she almost died in a car accident.
On that fateful day, Shannon was driving down the winding back roads of Georgia when a sudden turn caused her to lose control of her car.
Her car crashed and her body landed in the surrounding desert, 100 feet from the main road.
As a result of the impact, Shannon suffered a serious head injury and was unable to move.
At that moment, a stray German Shepherd wandering nearby noticed her plight and ran to help. He dragged her lifeless body and felt that the wounded woman’s time was running out.
Over the next few minutes, Shannon passed out as she felt her body being dragged from the wild by a brave German Shepherd.
The disoriented woman knew the dog was standing next to her when the driver eventually found her lying on the side of the road.
Thanks to a very timely emergency, Shannon survived.
The moment she regained consciousness, she began looking for the dog that alone had saved her from certain death.
After days of searching for the dog, Shannon finally found it and proudly named it “Hero”.
