Stacie King, a canine trainer, suffers from epilepsy and is also continuously in pain due to a disorder called reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome.
Because King is a canine trainer, she believed it would certainly be a great idea to adopt a dog that she could train to be her very own service dog. So, she and her wife saved a pup named Zeke from a nearby sanctuary.
In order to be a service dog, the dog should know two commands. Not just does Zeke know those two commands, however he knows nearly 60 of them!
While King saved Zeke from sanctuary life, Zeke has actually repaid her several times. King says that Zeke has already saved her life many times.
In April, King suffered a seizure, and Zeke was there to alert a neighbor to obtain help. 2 months later, King suffered one more seizure while she was texting a neighbor. When the neighbor really did not get a response awhile, she walked over to King’s home and went inside to examine her.
The neighbor saw Zeke in the bathroom, using his body to proper King approximately maintain her from asphyxiating, and clearing her airway.
The neighbor instantly called 911, who hurried her to the ER. If it weren’t for both the neighbor and Zeke, King wouldn’t have survived.
King wishes her tale will remind people that shelter dogs are just as capable of coming to be service canines as the canines people wait a long time and pay thousands of bucks for.
