An Alabama family went through a nightmare.
It all started on a hot summer day, when Linda and her 5-year-old daughter, Maggie, were relaxing in the pool in their backyard. After a few hours, the two came out of the pool. The mother sat on a sunbed to tan, and little Maggie played with the dolls in the shade.
Maggie was hungry so Linda went to the kitchen to prepare some food. Not even in the worst nightmares did she think about what was going to happen.
Maggie dropped a toy in the pool, and when she lay down by the pool to pick it up, she slipped and fell into the water.
The girl does not know how to swim, she started screaming but her mother did not hear her.
When the mother returned from the house, she witnessed an incredible scene: Copper, the family’s pit bull came in full speed and jumped into the pool. He grabbed Maggie’s hand and swam with her. Linda ran desperately and took the little girl out of the pool.
Maggie had swallowed a lot of water but was conscious. Linda immediately called 911 and a crew arrived on the scene. The doctors gave her first aid and found that little Maggie was safe from any danger.
Linda remembers that moment with horror: “I was only 5 minutes away, I knew Maggie was playing quietly with the toys, so I went to the kitchen to make her a sandwich. I didn’t hear her scream, but I heard the bang in the water when Cooper jumped to save her. Thank God Cooper was there and managed to save Maggie. He is an extraordinary dog and we love him just like our children. ”
What surprised Linda the most was the fact that Cooper doesn’t like water or swimming in the pool.
“He’s afraid of water, and no matter how hard we try to get him used to it, Cooper has always refused to come into the pool with us,” said Linda.
The fact that Cooper no longer considered his fear of water and jumped to save Maggie without thinking, says a lot about the spirit and courage of this dog.
Once again, a pit bull proves that the label put by some people and the media is a fake one. Pit bulls are the most loving and loyal dogs in the world.
Unfortunately, these stories do not appear in the news.
Bravo Cooper, you are a hero!
