Who’s a heroic girl?

A loyal New Jersey rescue dog saved her owner’s life by dragging him to his cellphone after he collapsed during a stroke, according to a heartfelt post from her former animal shelter.

The owner, known only as Brian, was home alone with the German shepherd, Sadie, last week when he fell to the ground and couldn’t move, according to the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge, which helped Brian adopt the pooch several months ago.

The 6-year-old dog licked Brian’s face to keep him awake then pulled him to his cellphone, allowing him to call for help, the Oakland-based shelter said in a Facebook post.

“While he was collapsed, Sadie never left his side. She licked his face to keep him awake, and helped drag him across the room to his cell phone. Sadie was the only reason that Brian was able to call for help,” the shelter wrote.

Sadie is now staying with Brian’s family as he recovers at a rehab center, the shelter said. She sees him nearly every night via video chat.

“Brian gave Sadie a second chance at life, adopting Sadie and welcoming her home,” the shelter wrote. “This time, Sadie gave Brian a second chance at life.”

The shelter didn’t immediately respond to a call Wednesday.
