Would you jump in front of a car to save someone you love?

Right now, in upstate New York, a hero is recovering from a very scary accident. Figo, a trained service dog, took his job of protecting his owner, a blind woman named Audrey Stone, very seriously when he saved her from getting potentially killed by a school bus. While service dogs aren”t taught to jump in front of oncoming traffic to protect their owners, Figo knew that his owner was in serious danger…

When Figo saw the car coming, he did his best to take the majority of the blow.
