A dog helped save her owner who was badly injured in a car
crash just days before Thanksgiving.
John Miles was walking his dog Lucy on Neponset Street in
Dorchester, as he does every day, when both of them were hit by a car.
John blacked out and doesn't remember what happened. Lucy, a
husky-beagle mix, who was also injured, limped to a nearby dentist's office and
barked until help arrived. She limped back and stayed by John's side until
emergency crews arrived.
"I'm very happy that Lucy did what she did," Miles said.
"Makes me feel wonderful because if a dog as good as her can get recognition
for doing something above and beyond good for her."
John had no identification on him, so first responders used
Lucy's ID tags to determine who they were
"What I'm being told is she sat there and was crying and
everything else, you know because I couldn't get up," John says. "That's the
type of dog she is."
John suffered major injuries including two broken legs, a
broken arm and 15 facial fractures. He will undergo surgery on Thursday. Lucy
is currently limping around with a torn ACL and leg fractures. Right now, she
is clearly missing John.
"We found out that beagles actually cry, they have tear
ducts," said Caitlan Miles, John's daughter. "So after the accident, when I was
home with her, she had tears running down her fur. She is walking around lost
Lucy will have surgery on Friday. A fund has been set up to
help pay for the cost of her care.
"Once the winter's over, if I'm recovered and Lucy's
recovered you can bet we'll be out doing our walking again," John said.
