A guide dog who recently helped save his owner after being run over by a NYC subway train is being “thanked” by losing the insurance benefits that has enabled him to stay with his owner. Why? Because he turns 11-years-old in January and will be deemed a “non-working dog.”
When 11-year-old Orlando jumped on the tracks to save his blind owner who had fallen, frightened onlookers rushed to alert MTA workers; but it was too late – a train was fast approaching.

The black Labrador jumped on to the tracks right after and desperately attempted to awaken him. But to no avail.
