Five-year-old Kendall Sendall owes her life to her best friend Phoebe, a six-year-old Australian Shepherd.
When Kendall was three-years-old, Phoebe would always head straight towards Kendall whenever she came in from outside.
She would place her paw on the sleeping child and would pull her towards Kendall’s parents as if to alert them of something wrong.
The Sendall’s called a doctor in regards to Kendall and her sleeping a lot and they were told that nothing was wrong and it might just be an ear infection.
But Phoebe knew that something was wrong. She got more desperate and began to pull at her owners’ clothing to go towards Kendall. Phoebe wouldn’t do this with any of the other children except for Kendall.
Kendall’s parents finally took her to the emergency room because of Phoebe’s constant efforts to tell them something, and it was discovered that Kendall had acute leukemia.
The leukemia had already gotten into Kendall’s joints, but thanks to Phoebe, the cancer is in remission. Kendall is healthy and just like any other energetic five-year-old girl.
Phoebe was also honored for saving Kendall. She was presented with a trophy by the Franklin County Humane Society, and the family was given $700 to help with Kendall’s medical expenses.
Phoebe continues to watch over her best friend and stay by her side to keep her safe.
