Dog Wanders Off for Days—and Returns with Amazing Note

For one family in New Zealand, one thing has always been certain: their dog Louie is a very good boy. However, they did not realize until recently how wonderful their dog actually is until he did something incredible. So incredible, in fact, that many people are even calling him a town hero. The sheepdog is a beloved family pet, but he is also known to venture away from home on what his family calls “adventures.” The family lives on a farm, so there is plenty of room for the twelve year old dog to wander. As he has grown older, he has been staying closer to the house, so it was uncommon recently when Louie left and did not come back.

The family was concerned and became worried that he had forgotten where his home was or that he might even be in trouble. What was really happened came to light when Louie finally returned home with a note around his collar. The family was initially worried that he had gotten in trouble or was hurt, because he was so tired when he got home. Then, they read the note which said: “Louie is the hero of the day. He led me to Maddy in distress stuck under a branch pile. Cheers, Rob.”

You see, Rob is a farmer who lives nearby and Maddy is his little dog. So, the family called him to learn more about what happened. Rob said he left to run errands and when he returned, his dog Maddy was gone but Louie was there. He insisted the man follow him and led Rob to a pile of wood where his dog had been trapped. Rob and Louie then dug Maddy out of the pile and then the two dogs ran to a nearby pond where they cooled off and drank water.

Louie saved Maddy’s life, and for that he is a true hero.
