Depressed dog refuses to leave pregnant mom alone – then she realizes she’s trying to save her life

Alhanna Butler, 21, and her fiancé Ricky, 25, live in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, with her son Lincoln and their dog, Keola.

Were it not for Keola, an American Akita, Alhanna and her son would probably not be around today.

When Alhanna was pregnant  with Lincoln she began to experience sharp pains in her lower back.

She went to hospital, but doctors told her not to be concerned. They said it was a side effect of her pregnancy and nothing to be overly worried about.
