Missy is held by her thankful owner after she went for help after a fall.
YAMHILL, Ore. (AP) – A small dog who refused to return home until a neighbor followed her helped rescue her owner after he collapsed at home following heart surgery.
Charles Mitchell said he was working in his yard last week in the Oregon wine country town of Yamhill when an 11-year-old Dachshund named Missy scampered up and refused to leave.
Mitchell told the dog to go home, but she refused. When he decided to follow her across the street to investigate, he found his neighbor – Charlie Burdon – had collapsed inside his home.
Burdon had suffered an attack of vertigo and is recovering. However, Burdon and Mitchell – who have known each other for years – both say Missy is their hero.
Charlie Burdon snuggles up to Missy after he collapsed and she went to get him help.
