Heroic Family Dog stays with Lost Toddler in Woods until Both are Found
Dogs can be extremely helpful, and it’s all because of their incredible sense of loyalty. A family in Virginia learned that their rescue pup wasn’t just a loved one, but a lifesaver!
Three-year-old Mason wandered off into the woods when he wanted to follow his father, who was driving away to go to work. The toddler didn’t just wander a couple of feet, but a couple of miles.
He was missing for nine hours.
While he was gone, family and hundreds of volunteers searched high and low for him, and couldn’t find any trace of him. But around 3 a.m., authorities heard barking. It was the family dog, Banjo!
Banjo was rescued by Mason’s family two years ago, and followed the little boy for as long as he was lost. He barked when he sensed people who could help him. The little one is safe, and the family is endlessly thankful for the loyal pup’s actions.
