A Rhode Island woman would likely have choked to death if not for her loyal and alert dog, whose quick actions saved the woman's life, according to WLNE-TV.

Candace Lines was eating a piece of chicken at home when the food became stuck in her throat and she started to choke. Luckily, Lines had an emergency alert system in place, and a German Shepherd who knew how to use it.

"I went like this and told her to help and she did," said Lines, indicating that her dog, Samantha, pressed the emergency alert button meant to ward off home invader.s

Emergency crews made it to Lines' home in time to save her, while Samantha kept a close eye on her owner the whole time. "She let the firemen take care of me. She sat right there in the hallway and watched everything, " Lines said.

Lines has four dogs, all of whom she considers her kids, but she says she's always shared a special bond with Samantha, a bond that has only deepened now that she owes her life to the loyal dog.

Oh, she looks like my Cheyenne that has passed on. she was so smart, we had a friend that would come over every week to see what she had learned that week. I think you can train shepherds anything if they love you.
