You can always count on your dog to be there and help you when you need it the most, and this story proves just that.
Mark Brows is a father of four who was taking his Shnauzer Betzi Boo for a walk when things took a sudden turn for the worse.
I’d just got home from work and as usual, Betzi was very excited to see me.Mark Said
We set off on our evening walk down the street, and it was very calm, sunny evening with no wind or anything when I heard something in the tree.
I looked up expecting to see a squirrel or a cat and couldn’t spot anything, but knew there had to be something as a tiny branch had fallen as well.
Suddenly, I felt this strange shaking and Betzi, who is very strong, pulled me away to the side. Almost immediately, it sounded like firecrackers going off and this giant tree came smashing down on where I’d just been standing, destroying a nearby wall.
Mark described the seconds after the incidents:
People came running out of their houses, but I was frozen to the spot in shock as I realised I had been literally milliseconds from disaster if Betzi hadn’t pulled me away
And this is not the first time Betzi proved herself to be a very smart, capable, and action-driven dog.
A gang attempted to crow bar our front door to look for car keys, only to find Betzi on the other side who sprung into full attack mode and chased them away.
Our car was safe thanks to our brave pet, but it was very scary and traumatic for us as a family, and the police said the thieves still managed to get a BMW in the next village
Betzi is quite the capable dog, too, and if things took a turn for the worst at any day, she is more capable in turning things in her favor:
Betzi is six stone and all muscle, so must have given the criminals quite the scare, but she always has a wonderful temperament with us and is an amazing family dog
