ORIENTAL, N.C. (WNCT) — People say dogs are a man’s best friend. That is especially true for a man in Pamlico County, North Carolina.

Rudy Armstrong spends most of his time with his chihuahua, Bu-Bu, on his boat. One morning, Armstrong felt sick and told Bu-Bu to get help. You don’t expect such a tiny pup to have so much character, but that is not the case with Chihuahuas.

As expected, the pup was there to save the day. The dog ran out the door, and, five minutes later came back with the dock master, who called 911. 

Armstrong was taken to Carolina East Medical Center, where doctors determined he was suffering a stroke.

The Story that Shocked North Carolina

Armstrong says he can’t wait to be back with his life-saving Bu-Bu. 

“I’m excited about getting to see her. I mean, she sleeps with me. When I go someplace in the car, she goes with me and all that. You know, I mean, we do everything together,” he said.

Armstrong is still in the hospital but says he’s recovering nicely.
