Dog goes crazy in front of fence. Finally, his owner decides to take a look

At first, Mick Condo didn't pay too much attention to his three-year-old dog's strange antics near part of the fence in the backyard of his home in Perth, Australia. He figured there was something near the fence that had distracted Zeus, his Staffordshire bull terrier.
But Zeus continued to obsess over this part of the fence, trying to let his owner know something wasn't right.

“He was whimpering and carrying on at the fence, so I went to see what the issue was,” Condo told PerthNow.
What Condo found took his breath away. His next door neighbor, a senior man, had fallen in his yard and couldn't get back to his feet. "I could hear a faint voice saying, 'Help me, I think I've broken my hip. I've been lying here for two days,"' Condo said.
The 96-year-old neighbor had fallen on the concrete floor of his backyard patio. It was shortly after Christmas, the man was wearing only shorts, and temperatures were freezing at night.
Condo recalled, “I ran out the front and got a couple of young fellas to help and then we went and bashed in the gate so we could get in.”
The neighbor was in rough shape. He was dehydrated and had suffered some injuries in his fall, including a broken hip. He was taken to the hospital, and thankfully, has since made a full recovery.
Condo firmly believes Zeus was trying to tell him that their neighbor needed help, and that Zeus saved the neighbor just in time. The neighbor "kept saying that he couldn’t have made it through another night,” Condo said.
For his vigilance and heroism, Zeus received a tasty steak dinner and the undying admiration of his owner. "He is a class dog, just incredible, such a lovable dog," Condo said proudly.
