A dog has been hailed as a hero after stopping traffic to get help for its owner after she had a seizure.

Haley Moore was walking her dog Clover in the Canadian capital Ottawa when she suffered a seizure, although the loyal pooch came to her aid by stopping traffic in a bid to get help.

Camera footage showed Clover checking on her owner before running into the street to stop a passing car.

Moore, who was unhurt in the incident, told CTV News: "If this ends up happening again, I feel 10 times safer and I know she will be there for me.

"You know how good animals are and she's a really amazing dog and I love her to death."

Truck driver Dryden Oatwa added: "It was really impressive, the dog actually blocked my way. She kind of backed into the road to block my truck."
