A brave dog has saved a sick baby's life after they stopped breathing when the loyal pooch was found breaking into the nursery.

In a post on Twitter, Kelly Andrews was full of praise for the loyal K-9 after the dog, Harry, alerted her to her baby who had stopped breathing.

"Last night the dog kept breaking into the nursery and waking the baby. She's been sick, and I was getting so fed up with him. Until she stopped breathing," she said in her post.

"We spent the night in the hospital. I don't know what would have happened if he hadn't woken her."

The concerned parent added: "We don't deserve dogs."
