A young man named Byron sunk into a deep depression after his relationship fell apart. He hit bottom and began contemplating suicide.
After a day of heavy drinking, Byron made a noose and went downstairs to write a goodbye note to his family.
When he returned upstairs, Byron found the noose clenched inside his dog’s mouth. Geo, a six-year-old Rare Welsh Bull Mastiff, had grabbed the noose when Byron left the room and refused to give it back.
The more Byron tried to retrieve the rope, the louder Geo would growl — something gentle Geo hardly ever did.
At first, Byron thought Geo wanted to play — but before he knew it, his dog completely destroyed the noose.
Now, Byron says he wouldn’t be alive today if it wasn’t for Geo.
