A golden retriever saved the life of a man who had broken his neck and was left to freeze to death

Meet Kelsey, a golden retriever who is demonstrating why dogs truly are our best friends.

Bob from Michigan, his human, slipped on ice one day and broke his neck just outside his house.


“I screamed for help, but my nearest neighbor is a quarter-mile away, and it was 10:30 p.m.”


Bob appeared to be in a pickle, but fortunately for him, he had his furry guardian angel by his side, “but then my Kelsey came and saved me.”
My voice was gone by morning, and I couldn’t yell for help, but Kelsey didn’t stop barking.”


Bob was only wearing his long johns, slippers, and a shirt on the freezing cold winter night because he was only going out of his house to get a log for his fireplace.

Instead, this turned into a 20-hour ordeal in which Bob lay paralyzed in the snow.
He would have died of cold if it hadn’t been for his furry friend.

“She kept barking for help but never left my side,” Bob explained.
She kept me alert and warm.
I knew I had to push through this and that staying alive was my choice.”


Unfortunately, Bob passed out in the 19th hour, but Kelsey was not about to give up!

“She let out a screeching howl that woke up my neighbor.”
He discovered me at 6:30 p.m.”
Finally, after his neighbor discovered him, he was rushed to the local hospital for emergency surgery.

He is now fully recovered and credits Kelsey with saving his life.
