Dog Saves Owner’s Life, Gets Hit by Car

A heroic rescue near Philadelphia this weekend proves a pooch really is man’s best friend.

Ozzie, the hero dog, as he’s being called, was credited with saving his master’s life by pushing him out of the way of a hit and run accident.

David Tillman, Ozzie’s master, says his dog thought nothing of his own life as he pushed him away from an incoming car and was himself dragged under it losing part of his leg and almost losing his life.

“He’s a hero, he saved my life. This is my best friend man,” said Tillman,”I was kind of bummed out cause he was hurting really, really bad.”

Residents who saw the story on a local news station poured in support with donations to help save Ozzie who is still in a battle to save his life despite two operations.

“What a long, strange trip it’s been man, you know,” Tillman said, “I’m just glad he’s home.”

Ozzie’s medical bills were covered in full by the donations but despite all the calls and goodwill, police still have not found the suspect who drove off.
