A hero hound in Ohio called 911 and helped save his owner, the owner says.

When Marine veteran Terry McGlade collapsed from a seizure, McGlade says his trained rescue dog Major was quick to save the day. The lab-pit bull mix pulled McGlade’s phone from his pocket and stepped on the screen for several seconds until it called 911.

While Major never barked, dispatchers say they became suspicious when they got multiple calls from the number and heard a man in the background who sounded confused.

Major waited at the curb for emergency responders, then led them to McGlade.

McGlade, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, got Major two years ago. He is trained to sense when McGlade is going to have a seizure and helps him cope with his PTSD.

McGlade spent a night in the hospital, but he said he’s now doing much better.
