Figo, an eight-year-old retriever, hurled himself at the oncoming vehicle as he and Audrey Stone crossed the road.
Witnesses said he positioned himself between the bus and his owner to cushion the blow.
The academy machine motorist didn’t see Audrey Stone and her service canine, Figo, crossing the road, but Figo saw the motorist and replied by throwing himself at the closest part of the vehicle to shield Stone.
According to USA Today, Brewster Chief of Police John Del Gardo had nothing but admiration for Figo, saying “ The canine took a lot of the blow. And he didn’t want to leave her side. He stood right with her. He was there to save her.”
Fifteen EMTs arrived to help Stone, who fractured her right elbow and her ankle and sustained three broken caricatures. Throughout it all, Figo wanted to stay by her side and Gravestone called out for him constantly.
Figo had a bad rent to his right leg and EMTs swathed it. Throughout the chaos, Figo remained calm and didn’t bark or cry, despite being in egregious pain.
As Figo couldn’t accompany Stone in the ambulance, he was taken in the Brewster Fire Department truck and taken to the vet.
Both Figo and Stone are recovering from surgery and doing well and recovering in sanitarium.
What an incredibly selfless and stalwart canine! Share Figo’s act of heroism with your family and friends!
