Thor Saves Fallen Woman

Colin Heaton and Anne Lewis of Southport, North Carolina, adopted a Pit Bull/Rottweiler mix that had been rescued from a "bad situation." They named him Thor. The dog has since protected chickens from foxes, coyotes, and even a snake which bit him. Earlier this month, Thor got the chance to rescue a human.
Barbara Simmons, 78, fell on the side of the road while checking her mail on a hot day earlier this month.

She said she yelled for help but no one came to her rescue for at least a half hour.  Thor, a dog with a heroic name, noticed Simmons and went to check it out.

"He was just so gentle and like, 'are you okay, are you okay?'" explained Simmons.  "It was like somebody asking, 'are you okay, are you okay?'"

Thor's owners said he was acting strangely that day, ignoring their commands.

"He ran to this point and he stopped and looked back at my husband and barked at him a couple of times like, ‘I'm not going to listen to you,' and he took off right around the corner," said owner Anne Lewis.

Thor led his owners to Simmons nearly a block away.  They called for help and the EMT told Lewis that Thor probably saved her life. -via Fortean Times
