BREWSTER, NY - There's a reason why they say a dog is man's best friend, but now one woman in New York can attest.
"I thank God that I have him and that he survived too, and I love him," said Audrey Stone.
Stone's service dog, Figo, threw himself in front of a school bus to save her. Apparently, the 8-year-old golden retriever and his legally blind owner were crossing a street in Brewster when a mini school bus approached them.
Figo immediately hopped into action. Stone's trusty companion switched sides with her and witnesses say he jumped between stone and the bus.
They were both hit by the bus and had some pretty bad injuries, but they're recovering.
Meanwhile, a couple of service dogs in Minnesota are also getting a little recognition. The superstar dogs belong to two teachers and are being featured in the high school yearbook under the "staff section".
