Ann Rolfe says her German shepherd, Saba, is a hero for saving her life.
Rolfe was at her home in the backyard with Saba when it became extremely windy. Rofle was trying to cover the barbecue grill when Saba started to become excited and aggressive.
She said it was completely out of character for Saba. Rolfe took the anxious German shepherd inside, and just as she did, she heard a crash.
The wind had toppled over a 50-foot spruce tree in her backyard. It crashed in the same spot Rolfe had been standing in just seconds earlier.
Rolfe said, “I would have been fiddling around with the barbecue cover. I owe my life to my dog, totally. If it wasn’t for my dog I would have been gone.”
She also said her Broil King barbecue saved the house from any damage because when the tree fell, it bounced back after hitting the grill. The fallen tree caused $4,000 in damage to the roof and eavesdropping.
