Dog Saves Owner By Leading Rescuers To Car Crash Site

Dog Saves Owner By Leading Rescuers To Car Crash Site

A dog has saved its owner in the US by leading police to a car wreck on the highway.

Most of us didn't need further proof that we don't deserve dogs, but if you did here's the story you've been looking for.

Travellers on the Interstate 89 highway in Vermont spotted a very good doggo trotting along the road.

Worried about how the pup would survive on a highway at night, they called the state troopers who attended the road at 10pm and spotted the pooch.

When they approached the dog it continued to run down the road towards an intersection.

Luckily they followed it, because Tinsley, the best dog in the whole world, was leading them to a damaged part of the highway's railing where her owner had come off the road and wrecked his car.

Tinsley had been in the car when it crashed, however she managed to escape the wreckage, head up to the road, and attract the attention of passers-by.

New Hampshire State Police Lt. Daniel Baldassarre told local media the officers felt they needed to follow Tinsley.

"They could tell the dog was trying to show them something because she kept trying to get away from them but didn't run away totally," said Baldassarre.

"It was kind of, 'Follow me. Follow me.' And they did that and, to their surprise, to see the guardrail damaged and to look down to where the dog is looking at, they were almost in disbelief."

Tinsley's owner and his friend had been ejected from the truck. They were seriously injured and hypothermic as a result of the crash.

The officers called for medical assistance and both the occupants survived, thanks to Tinsley's assistance and perseverance.

Tinsley, a very good German Shepherd, did not appear to be injured in the crash and her owner is incredibly thankful for her.

"She's my little guardian angel you know," Tinsley's owner Cam Laundry said. "It's a miracle that she had that kind of intelligence to do what she did."

If you're not already sobbing from the heroic acts of this best pupper, here's the kicker.

The search and rescue team who attended the crash and began working on Laundry at the scene said Tinsley sat firmly by his side, patiently waiting while he got fixed up.

The rescuers said she was very calm and friendly while she watched over her human.

"Of course, she never leaves my side, so we're always together in that truck that got wrecked she's always my co-pilot, she's always with me," Laundry said.

Now for the important specifics: Laundry says Tinsley was treated to a venison burger after her big night of heroism and received plenty of back scratches.

I assume she will also receive some sort of medal for being the best dog in the world.

Or at least the internet equivalent, which is the rare 15/10 from We Rate Dogs.

Tinsley, we salute you, the best doggo.
