Last year Alhanna Butler and husband Ricky had binned what they thought was a ‘negative’ pregnancy test, only to return home to find American Akita Keola had picked it out of the bin to show it was in fact ‘positive’.
When the 21 year old from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, soon fell ill during pregnancy she was sent home from hospital after being told her back pain was just due to her small frame.
However Alhanna claims Keola knew that something was seriously wrong as she would not stop crying and staring at her, just like Hatchi from the movie.
After sharing a photograph on social media of Keola staring intently at her for almost an hour, Alhanna’s mum Amanda rang her to say the dog was telling her something was wrong.
However when the mum to be arrived at hospital, she collapsed and almost died.
Alhanna was hospitalised in intensive care with an antibiotic resistant bug and a double kidney infection and doctors said she would have died had she not come in when she did.
A video ‘thank you’ tribute to Keola for saving Alhanna and 13 week old baby Lincoln went viral on social media and has amassed more than 4.5million views.
