In order to help keep her neighbor safe amid the Coronavirus pandemic one Colorado woman has turned to her dog Sundance for help.
Karen Evelth, who has lived near Renee Hellman for over a decade, came up with a clever way to make sure her neighbor — who has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and requires oxygen to breathe — could get groceries without leaving the house, according to KKTV.
After Hellman decided to self-quarantine, Evelth trained her golden retriever, nicknamed Sunny, to pick up Hellman’s grocery list, and then after the shopping was done, bring her groceries to her front door.
“He’s a hero for sure.” Evelth told KRDO, adding that even though her dog has been helping out for several weeks now, her neighbor still gets excited every time. “She always runs to the window to see that ‘Oh my God I can’t believe he did it again, and again, and again.’
