When Alanna Buster from Doncaster became pregnant, she was advised to get rid of the dog. They explained this by the fact that it would be difficult for a young mother to take care of a pet and a child. And the risk of disease transmission should also be taken into account. However, the girl became attached to her Akita Inu named Keola and after some thought decided to leave everything as it is.
From the first days of pregnancy, Keola did not leave the owner. The woman did not pay attention to her at first, until the dog’s actions became intrusive.
By the 20th week, Keola relentlessly followed the owner and constantly interfered with her hard work, to the point that they piled all their weight and forced her to sit or lie down.
At this time, Alanna began to feel pain, heaviness in the pelvic region, but attributed it to secondary signs of pregnancy. However, Keola also looked very sad, and Alanna decided to go to the doctors.
Doctors practically saved her from death.
The case was considered one of the most difficult in the history of the district.
And there is no doubt that the main role here was played by Keola, who recognized the disease better than all the diagnosticians and, as best she could, conveyed this information to the girl.
Thanks to this, Alanna and her son Lincoln are now alive and well, and Keola has become the unofficial godmother of the boy. Deserved.
