Jefferson Fox noticed a dog along the side of the road still towing a leash. Concerned, he stopped. The dog really did need help, but not for himself.
Fox tried to catch the dog, but she wouldn’t let him. He followed the collie along the road, and around the side of a house.
“When the dog turned the corner and went in the garage and I followed it in, there was another dog on the same red leash, and it was curled up next to the elderly woman on the floor,” said Fox.
Fox called 911, and emergency crews took her to the hospital.
By the time Fox found the old lady she had been laying in the garage for over 4 hours and was shaking from the cold. One dog next to her had tried to keep her warm.
The woman is doing OK.
The dog was a border collie, widely praised for their intelligence.
She is lucky to have such loyal dogs and that Mr. Fox was paying attention to notice this odd situation. A happy ending.
