During Andy’s coma, eddy, a 4-year-old Schnauzer/Poodle mix, managed to visit his owner in the hospital. What happened next is nothing less than a miracle. A dog was recognized for his heroic actions after he brought his cancer-survivor owner out of a coma 3 days early.
In December, Szasz, a resident of Southampton, England, developed a severe case of pneumonia that required hospitalization in the intensive care unit when he stopped breathing. Later, he was put into a coma for his safety. After his therapy, physicians predicted that Szasz wouldn’t fully awaken for a week.
His wife Estelle felt it would be amusing to bring in their dog Teddy, a schnauzer-poodle mix who sometimes wears a bow tie and does stunts. Teddy was taken to Estelle’s husband’s room with authorization, and as soon as the dog began to bark, the man’s coma-induced unconsciousness was broken.
Szasz remarked, “Ted is such a wonderful little dog in so many ways. He has a lot of good qualities, including being amusing, loving, loyal, and clever. I constantly tell people that I rescued Ted and that Ted rescued me,” Szasz stated in an interview. We do, without a doubt, share a unique bond.
InsideEdition.com was informed by RSPCA spokesman Ginny Reid that Teddy would video contact Szasz from the hospital after his visit. Szasz, according to her, is doing well after coming out of his coma. Teddy was the only animal to receive recognition in this year’s special animal category, and according to Szasz, he gave high-fives to almost everyone he encountered there. What a remarkable story of the power of love between a dog and its owner!
