Clobberhead the dog uses nose to save the day

All hail Clobberhead, the gas-smelling superdog.

 

Shelbyville, Ind., resident Erin Cramer has her family's newly adopted greyhound, named Clobberhead, to thank for saving her from a potentially explosive situation.

Cramer, who picked Clobberhead up from a rescue group a few months ago, said he started acting strangely one day when she stayed home sick from work.

He started banging his head against a wall, and when she took him outside for some air, he dragged her back inside.

It wasn't until the dog successfully convinced Cramer to open the door to her laundry room that the danger finally hit home. It turns out there was a natural gas leak coming from the apartment's laundry room.

"This wall of gas just came pouring out," Cramer told Fox59. Even scarier, her water heater had sprung a gas leak and, even more alarming, it was sparking.

Cramer said that experts told her that the sparks would have likely ignited the gas fumes and "taken out not only this house but several around me."

"If it wasn't for him (Clobberhead) coming into our lives, we probably wouldn't be here right now," Cramer said.

Getting that dog, was meant to be. That is so great, that Clobberhead saved the families lives. That's one reason I love dogs so much.

I agree, what great timing. Someone was watching out for her. Do you have Dogs?

My husband and I have a lab mix, named Buddy. He adopted Rick as his dad. He loves us and tries to protect us. Sometimes we play and act like we are going to hit each other. He runs around us barking and trying to save us from each other. He is adorable, Jason and Amanda have three cats, named Kitten, Molly and Panda. I used to not like cats, until they came into my life. I thoughts all cats were the same. Those three showed me how wrong I was.
