“Clifford saved Alex’s life last night,” says Alex’s mother. “Earlier, we went to bed really tired, and were sleeping soundly when Alex got up and opened the back door. We didn’t hear the alarm. That’s when Clifford acted. He came into our bedroom and jumped into our bed licking my husband’s face then licking my face back and forth until he woke us up.
“When I woke up I heard the alarm. Clifford took off running and led me to the back door where Alex was. I took Alex back to his room and Clifford jumped up into bed with Alex and laid over him without being told to and this was around 4:20 a.m.
My husband and I went back to bed after dealing with the alarm company. When we got up at 7, Clifford was still laying on Alex.
“How can you thank a service dog for saving your son from being outside at 4 in the morning and it’s 27 degrees? And we just got Clifford in January!
“God Bless 4 Paws for putting Alex and Clifford together.”
