A pint-sized dog is being credited with helping get prompt medical attention for an Elkhart woman who collapsed in her home during a diabetic fainting spell.

When Marlene Huffer fainted August eleventh, Danny began barking loudly and racing back and forth inside her home. Huffer had been caring for the Pomeranian mix from a dog rescue organization.

Neighbor Colleen Willits heard Danny's frantic barking and called paramedics when Huffer didn't respond.

The paramedics went inside the home and took Huffer to the hospital, where she learned that her low blood sugar had caused her fainting spell.

Huffer says her furry hero will be leaving soon to live with a permanent family.
