Pregnant Mom Whose Dog Keeps Barking At Her Had No Idea She Was Trying To Save Her Life

Dogs rarely receive the credit they deserve for their uncanny intuition. Not only are they able to tell when something is bothering their human friends, but they can actually sense what's happening in someone's body, too.

Keola, an American Akita, recently had the opportunity to prove that when she began following her owner, Alhanna Butler, of Doncaster in South Yorkshire, England, around their home. Everywhere Alhanna—who was pregnant at the time—went, Keola followed.

Then once Alhanna realized why her beloved dog was acting in such a manner, she was thanking her lucky stars...

It goes without saying, but dogs are truly some of the most fascinating and incredible animals we have on our planet. With their uncanny ability to sense when something is bothering their humans, they're practically clairvoyant!
Alhanna and Ricky Butler of Doncaster in South Yorkshire, England, certainly know what it's like to have an intuitive dog. When Alhanna became pregnant, their American Akita, Keola, became incredibly excited about the new addition to the family.
Everything was going smoothly for the expecting parents until recently, when Alhanna noticed Keola barking at her and following her everywhere she went. It wasn't until later that she realized her dog was trying to save her life...
The further Alhanna got into her pregnancy, the more she began experiencing lower back pain. Thinking something could be wrong, she visited her doctor to discuss the severe pain, but he told her it was just a side effect of pregnancy.
