Dog hailed as hero for guiding rescuers to owner's body

From Reuters Life!:

SYDNEY – A mongrel has proven that dogs really are man's best friend when he helped rescuers find the body of his owner who was killed in a car crash in Australia.

Moja, a small mixed breed, was in the truck with his owner Henry Drew when it crashed off a highway in Queensland and landed in dense shrubs.

The animal sat by Drew's body, which was hidden by trees, barking incessantly for two days until a farmer went to investigate the cause of the noise.

"If it was not for the man's dog, he may not have been found for some time because his truck was completely covered by trees and our helicopter couldn't see it," a spokesperson for AGL Action Rescue told Reuters.

"This bloke heard the dog barking, it was literally sitting by the man's side," the spokesperson said.

Drew had been reported missing by his wife after he did not answer his mobile phone. Rescue helicopters worked with police to search for the him until the farmer called.


I am sorry it sad ending that the woofie's human died in crash. Cats have stayed by their owners too and help them, but we can't bark and our meows not really that loud.

Dogs are not just our best friends but can also be our heroes whenever we are in need. To repay this kindness, you might want to become a hero too and Save A Dog: http://apps.facebook.com/save-a-dog/
