Tara - 1991 Inductee

DUNCAN, BRITISH COLUMBIA

TARA, an 11-year-old German Shepherd owned by Mike Langer, was the only one to hear a young man calling for help after being thrown from his motorcycle while riding along a railroad track. Tara’s frantic behaviour convinced her owner’s father, Helmut Langer, to follow her to where the man lay critically injured on the railway tracks. When the train raced past the accident site shortly after, the man was safely on his way to a hospital.
