A dog that suffers from epilepsy has helped rescue his carer, after he collapsed in the snow.

Bentley the dog raced back to the rescue centre in Evesham where he is cared for to get help.

Chris Slight, from Dogs Trust Evesham said: "The weather was atrocious that day and I dread to think what could have happened to Pete if Bentley hadn't raised the alarm."

The canine hero Bentley is still looking for a home.

Bentley led staff to where Pete was, and they helped him back to the centre, where he was wrapped in dog blankets, to warm him up until the ambulance arrived.

After hospital tests Pete recovered and was welcomed back to work by Bentley.



Gentle giant

Pete describes the American bulldog as a "gentle giant" who gets on well with other dogs, and would be best suited to a family with older children.

The rescue centre will pay all vet fees relating to his epilepsy if he is rehomed.

Anyone interested in giving Bentley a home should ring the Dogs Trust Evesham on 01386 830613.
