I decided that every Wednesday would be a blog about German Shepherd Dog heroes. Please send me your Heidelberg German Shepherd Dog hero story so that I can post a story about your hero. Also, please send your pictures of your hero.
This incident took place several years ago, and is a True Story:
Nancy was 27 married with children, a boy and girl age 3 and 2, and her husband traveled a lot for his job. They had purchased their Heidelberg shortly after they were married to protect Nancy while her husband was out-of-town. Up to now Heidelberg’s Chance had shown no signs of protectiveness and seemed to love everyone. In this neighborhood the mail boxes were on the front porches. Therefore, Chance’s daily routine included waiting for the mail delivery, which developed into a friendship to the point that the postman would ring the doorbell to say hi to Chance.
One night while alone with her two small children Nancy was awakened to the sound of a deep guttural growl, that she had never heard before. The growl caused the hair of her neck to stand. She got out of bed and followed Chance downstairs where he jumped up on the back window barking loudly.
Nancy still hazy from her deep sleep thought the best thing to do was to open the back door and let Chance out. Chance shot out the door and while Nancy couldn’t see clearly it was obvious that Chance had chased a large object over the chain link fence.
Nancy called the police, and the police found that the screen was removed from the back window and that the window had been pried open. The intruder, they said, was only moments from coming in the house.
A week later in the same neighborhood an intruder broke into a house and brutally raped a women. They never did catch this predator, but what is known is that Chance saved Nancy and her two children from a brutal attack.
Ask me a question and I will provide my opinion.
