Dog owner discovers car crash after pet Dobermans hear accident
DailyMail ^ | August 21, 2013 | Daily Mail Reporter

Two dogs were hailed as heroes today after they heard a car crash more than a mile away and went on to save the driver's life.

Dobermans Star and Storm pulled hard on their leads and dragged along their owners, who did not hear the smash in rural Shropshire.

Sam and Emily Lewis followed their pets and they found a woman driver trapped in an overturned car in a country lane.

Not surprised.

My camera videos show the boy getting up to wait in the window while I’m still a mile and half away, just coming over the top of the mountain.

Seven drops her toy and runs to the back door 5 minutes before her daddy comes in from the shop.

He must put away/clean up things in a particular order and she’s learned to listen for it, whatever it is.

Spooky dogs.

Our family dogs can hear my nephew’s car turning onto an access road and heading home a mile away. Of course it doesn’t have a muffler, so that helps them ID the vehicle.

A 240Z (1972) without a muffler is VERY distinctive!

It must be how they know to cease all attempted maulings as well.

“No! Not now! We’ll only have more witnesses. Just wait until we get her alone again.”

Seriously, dogs are amazing, wonderful creatures. Truly a gift from God. I would not be surprised if The Lord directly commanded the dobermans to lead their owner to the crash site.

LOL!

I recently found this:

http://www.curiosityaroused.com/nature/top-10-most-dangerous-dog-breeds-based-on-bite-fatalities/

Coming in at #7:

Dobermann
Known to be one of the most aggressive breeds of dogs ever, the Doberman Pinscher was one of the most recognizable dog breeds as they were used extensively as guard dogs.
They were bred for the specific purpose of guarding their masters, and thus had to be aggressive but also intelligent.
Trained properly, these dogs can become very loyal to their masters, but aggressive towards perceived threats to their owners.
***Being responsible for 9 fatalities, most of these were notably in defense of their owners.***

So I’m not seeing the problem, here.

:)

My Doberman was quietly lying in bed upstairs one morning and suddenly jumped out of bed barking and growling and ran downstairs to the windows. I had heard nothing but he had detected a person innocently walking down the sidewalk through the walls of the house, with all windows closed, from approximately 70-100 yards away and he immediately and aggressively acted on it. That’s when I realized just how awesome Dobermans are.

I suppose you'll suggest that her youth must serve as excuse for such wanton aggression and destructive tendencies. Sure, it all starts innocently....

Dogs hearing and smelling amaze me.

I had an unfixed female. When I walked her, dogs in houses could smell her though the walls with the windows closed, in one second flat.

My Yorkie runs to the doctor when she hears the UPS truck before it ever passes the house. She can hear that engine and identify it immediately.

She charged to the back door yesterday and I looked and there was a squirrel trying to get one of my food plants. She saved that plant.

I named the boy Odin after seeing the 13th Warrior.

I thought it would fun to stand on the back porch on a really foggy morning and yell OOOOOHHH-din into the mists.

It’s great how they (both breeds) can connect to the family. I respect that.

When I was a kid — a time when kids’ dogs ran with the kids and were not confined — my school bus stop was 1/2 mile from my house. When my siblings and I got off the bus, our boxer Rex was there to greet us.

I have a basset hound that is wound up everytime we come home. He isn’t doing anything while we are gone, neighbors would complain. But as we drive up, he will be howling. I am convinced the know a smell or sound.

It’s hard to take seriously a site that can’t spell “German Shepherd” or do it consistently. Yet they can spell “Rottweiler”.

Never mind calling them “sheep guards” rather than the purpose indicated by their name.

I’m also not fond of “husky”. Is this just a Siberian Husky, or many SPITZ-type dogs?

I don’t dispute the absolute numbers, just that percentage is more important. Some of them are extremely popular, while others not so much.

My wonderful GS gone 18 years now could pick out UPS trucks MILES away. I have excellent hearing, and it could be 5 min before I heard that distinctive sound. She hated UPS men.

She also knew when someone stepped onto our official property even though it’s down the hill and you can’t see anything except heads. She might be watchful of a walker on the road, but if they stepped off onto our grass, she was going ballistic.

Current GS is clueless.

What’s really amazing here is the dogs seemed to distinguish that something was distressing.

Madam always gives a 5 minute warning. She knows 5 minutes before someone shows up at the house that they are coming. We have often wondered how she knows. Must be that she hears them coming from miles away.

I have two “awesomes” curled up on my feet while reading FR,(and they are that)

But then, I feel that way about most animals.
