And now for some good news.

Duke, a six-year-old adopted rescue dog and cherished Brousseau family member, became a hero last week after apparently saving the life of a 9-week-old infant.

According to WFSB, Duke jumped up on the Brousseau’s bed and began shaking uncontrollably, enough to wake them up.

“He is insanely obedient, so this is extremely bizarre,” Brousseau said.

Acting on a hunch that something very wrong was happening, they went into their 9-week-old daughter Harper’s room to find that she wasn’t breathing.

9-1-1 was called and the paramedics were successfully able to revive the newborn.

“I tell him all the time, ‘You were born in mommy’s heart,’ just because he was so meant to be ours,” Jenna Brousseau said. She added that they were inspired to tell their story so that others might consider rescuing a pet as well.

Check out video of Duke and the family below.
