The Pines Nursing Home in Canton, Ohio, has a furry pooch named Scamp on staff who has a special, psychic ability for knowing which elderly resident will be the next to bite the dust.
According to Scamps owner, nurse Adeline Baker, the paranormal pup barks and runs at dying residents, and stays in their room until they pass on.
But predicting death has been a bitch for the pup.
She says, When he lived in the home, his color changed and he wouldnt eat as well. It was too much for him. Now that he goes home with me, hes better.
Baker believes Scamp acquired his death radar after having a near-death experience of his own when he got hit by a car.
So far has predicted more than 40 deaths at the home, but the dog of doom doesnt scare any of the residents.
Baker says, Nobodys afraid, but some of them joke when they see him. Theyll say, Dont come near me, Scamp.
