Super Floyd saves the day!!

Here at Dogs Trust, we are super proud of all our dogs. Whether they still live here with us or have gone to their forever homes, we just think they are all amazing! 
Rascal, a 3 year old Rottweiler cross, came to us last August. He was a super clever boy who knew how to sit and give the paw, and would give his carers a big wag anytime they passed his kennel. We were thrilled to find him the perfect home last October with his new family, Lawrie and Paul, who renamed him Floyd.
Lawrie emailed us recently with a heart-warming story about Floyd. Paul and Floyd were out walking along the footpath at the back of Crumlin Hospital when Floyd became very alert and attentive towards the direction of the park across the road. He is always well behaved on the lead so this was unusual and Paul let Floyd lead him 150 meters into the park and stood to attention with his back to a gentleman who had fallen the ground, bringing Paul's attention to him. The gentleman was a local man in his late 60's and said that he had been there for at least an hour.
An ambulance was called and the paramedics felt that the gentleman may have suffered a dizzy spell and took him to casualty for assessment. This was very late at night, but no doubt they will come across the gentleman again and he will certainly recognise Floyd!
Lawrie says of Floyd:

 He is so gentle when playing with the local kids that he brings the game down to suit little ones. All the neighbours can't believe we haven't had him since he was a puppy. He's a very intuitive dog. The cat loves him now, which thrills him & freaks him out in equal proportions.
Thanks again for saving him. He's rewarding that back big time!”

We are so thrilled to hear that this gorgeous boy has hit the jackpot with his forever family, and that he is now a familiar face in his local community!
The superhero himself!
