A brave dog is called “a” “real life Lassie” after bravely leading police to her owner’s car crash.
Police say Tinsley, a Shiloh shepherd, tried desperately to get their attention after they received a call about a lost dog on an interstate near the New Hampshire/Vermont border.
“For those who remember ‘Lassie,’ it was that someone in distress and the dog goes and gets help and brings people to where that person in need is,”Inside Edition: Lt. Daniel Baldassarre
Tinsley was able to lead cops to the guard rail that had been smashed. Cam Landry, Tinsley’s injured owner, lay down below, beside the mangled wreckage.
Landry and his passenger were both thrown from their truck. They were both suffering from hypothermia.
The loyal dog is usually never far from her owner, but she decided to leave the scene because she knew she had to help save her friend’s life.
“She’s pretty remarkable. We have quite the impeccable bond,” Landry said.
Tinsley was given many back scratches and thanked.
