An American Akita dog named Keola lives in Doncaster, England. Keola has been with her owners, Ricky and Alhanna Butler, since she was just a puppy and made friends with them. Al-Hana found out that she was pregnant and was excited to add a new member to her family.
But, for some reason, Kyula looked visibly worried. The big dog was constantly barking at his mother’s expanding human stomach and chest.
Meanwhile, El-Hana began to experience severe back pain during her pregnancy. When she went to the doctor, he assured her that everything would be fine and that it was only because of the weight of the pregnancy. While the doctor seemed convinced that everything was fine, Kyula was not! The dog continued to bark at El-Hana’s trunk and his despair grew over time.
Then she began to look into the eyes of our deity, apparently begging her to do something and get help. The pregnant woman wanted to believe that everything was fine and that her dog was just nonsense, but she admitted that this unusual behavior scared her.
She took photos of the dog’s behavior and posted them on Facebook, in an attempt to shed light on a situation she was afraid of.
Instead of laughing with her, Elhana’s friends suggested that maybe the dog was on to something and could see – or feel – that something was wrong. Finally, El-Hana heeded Kyula’s warnings and returned to the doctor.
This time I asked for answers and forced them to participate in a survey. It turned out that the condition was serious and Elhana needed intensive care. The expectant mother had what doctors later described as «superbugs».
It was an antibiotic-resistant disease and has so far only affected one other person in the UK. And as if that wasn’t enough, she also had a serious kidney infection that was in her kidneys.
If she hadn’t gone to the doctor, she would have died with her baby. Thanks to Keola, ElHana received the treatment she needed to heal her kidneys and recover from the superbug. Her next trip was to the hospital to give birth to her stepson, Lincoln.
The family is now complete and Keola loves taking care of the newborn. We are sure that the family will be eternally grateful for this special dog!
