This amazing Labrador is a life-saver.

They say a dog is a friend for life - but for Shannon Locke from Bangor - Poppy is a lifeline.

Shannon (23) was diagnosed with severe epilepsy after suffering a massive attack when she was 17.

When her condition was at its worst, she was having up to 20 seizures a day, forcing Shannon to drop out of college and become housebound.

But when Poppy came along she became a lifeline for Shannon.

The Belfast Telegraph exclusively interviewed Shannon in July where she revealed how her two-year-old labrador dog appeared to be able to predict a seizure in advance.

And now she has filmed her dog in action in a bid to raise awareness of Disability Assistance Dogs charity to show everyone what Poppy can do.

The video has gone viral being watched millions of times.
