The Brousseau family is just like any other ordinarily normal family like you and me. They had a little boy, a little girl, and a mom and dad that absolutely loved each other. Even though they seemed to have everything they could ever want, something still seemed to be missing…

They decided they wanted to add a new member to the family, this time, one with four legs! They went ahead to their local animal shelter and adopted an adorable little pup named Duke. They had actually been able to save Duke from euthanasia, as the animal shelter was becoming overpopulated!

#10 They Had The Perfect Family

The couple and the children seemed to finally be complete in their perfect little family. They had wonderful children, and now an adorable new four-legged best friend! Everything seemed to be perfect like nothing could ever possibly go wrong. That was, until one night, something out of the ordinary happened.

#9 It Was Just A Normal Night

It seemed to be a normal night, just like any other in the Brousseau household. The children were peacefully sleeping in their respective beds, and the husband and wife laid down to rest. But out of nowhere, Duke came into their room and started to act a bit out of the ordinary.

#8 Duke Started To Act Strange

Duke came into the room in the middle of the night and began to act in a way like they had never seen him behave before! He was normally a very well behaved dog. He would always listen to the couple and do as he was told. But there was something different about tonight that was terrifying…

#7 He Was Acting Like He Never Did Before

Duke jumped onto their bed and began shaking violently. He seemed to be absolutely terrified of something that was happening within the house. This behavior was very abnormal for Duke, so the couple was pretty terrified. They didn’t really know what to do! What could be making Duke act so strange?

#6 They Thought Something Else Might Be Wrong

At first, they thought that Duke was just sick with something. After trying to coax him off the bed and calm him down, they quickly realized something else might be wrong. Maybe Duke was trying to tell them something that he couldn’t easily communicate since, well, he is a dog!

#5 They Were Shocked At What They Found In The Crib

Sure enough, they decided to check on the children. Their son seemed to be perfectly normal, but when they made their way into their daughter’s room, they were shocked at what they found. It was clear to them at this moment that Duke was trying to lead them exactly to their daughter’s crib.

#4 They Discovered Something Was Wrong With The Baby

Inside the crib lay their daughter. The couple stated that when the found her, she laid eerily still and had the appearance of a doll. Her face was pale and she wasn’t breathing. The couple was terrified, but they acted quickly and do exactly what they needed to do to save their daughter’s life!

#3 The Baby Was Fine

Once they discovered she wasn’t breathing, they hit their daughter on the back in order to help her breathe. Sure enough, she had spit up and was alive and breathing again. It appeared that she suffered acid reflux and was choking on her own spit up. She was safe!

#2 Duke Was A Hero

It became quickly clear that if the couple had not adopted Duke, he would have never been able to signal to the couple that their daughter was choking! We don’t even want to think about what the couple might have experienced had Duke not been around to warn them!

#1 The Family Urges The Importance Of Adoption

The Brousseau family took this as a lesson that adoption of animals is super important. Now they urge against buying designer brand dogs. They claim that if you save a dog, they will end up saving you back. That is definitely true for the case of Duke and his beloved family!

This story truly proves just how incredible dogs can be. It can be really scary to have a new baby. Parents often have trouble sleeping because they fear what might happen to their child why they aren’t awake. Well, Duke just goes to show that dogs can be really good babysitters! The trauma of what might have happened to the baby if Duke had not been there is definitely not something that we or the family has any interest in thinking about! Luckily that was not the case, and Duke was there to save the day and a little baby’s life!
