Hero Dog Barks for 5 Hours to Save 92-Year Old Owner after she Fell Behind Bushes
Marie Alexander, 92, saved a 9-year-old Chihuahua from a shelter and named her Sassy. Dog follows Alexander everywhere she goes, including outside to grab the mail.
One day when Alexander walked outside to get the mail, she stepped the wrong way and fell backward. She couldn’t get up by herself, and she thought no one would ever find her because she was lying behind her fence and bushes. But Sassy thought different.
Although Sassy only usually barks when the doorbell rings, on this day, she barked for 5 hours straight. She ran toward every car that passed and tried to get someone’s attention. Sassy didn’t give up for five whole hours, and finally, a couple walking by heard her and came to help.
Alexander was so dehydrated she had to be hospitalized. Without Sassy, who knows what would have happened.
