Death Predicting Dog

Meet Scamp. But wait, it is not just another dog! Scamp can sense death and provides comfort to the dying by standing by them. Scamp lives in a nursing home, The Pines, in Canton, Ohio. Scamp's owner, Deirdre Huth, is a staff member at the nursing home. According to her, Scamp even tries to raise the alarm when he gets the feeling that one of the seniors is at death's door.

Director of nursing Adeline Baker says Scamp has forecast practically every one of the 40 or so deaths that have occurred in the three years he's been at the home. She also insists Scamp's presence is welcomed by patients as the end draws near.Link
