EAST MEADOW, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A puppy is being hailed a hero after being credited with saving a Long Island woman and her baby.
Richard Giannetta, 33, knew something was wrong when he heard his dog, Louie, barking ferociously last Friday afternoon.
“I heard the dog barking like crazy, like I’ve never heard him bark before,” Giannetta told 1010 WINS’ Mona Rivera on Tuesday.
He found the year-old Goldendoodle upstairs in his North Merrick home next to his pregnant wife who was napping.
“I saw him on the bed on all fours barking at my wife,” Giannetta said. “Just an agitated bark like something was wrong, I could just tell.”
“I turned her over, her tongue was in her mouth and she had white foam all around her mouth,” he said.
