The internet has a wealth of stories featuring dogs saving their humans from danger. A lot of them can be tear-jerking while others are definitely inspiring.
Such anecdotes only prove that dogs are loyal to their humans. You can add to that collection this story where a Labrador Retriever saved his owner by barking nonstop to attract the rescuers.
The case of a missing woman
A loyal Labrador Retriever named Max saved his human’s life after finding themselves stranded in George Bush Park in Texas for almost three days. They did not have food, and they endured the heat and the rain.
According to local reports, Sherry Noppe, Max’s owner, was last seen on May 3 when she was strolling with her dog close to the 7,800-acre park. The reports also detailed that Noppe was recently diagnosed with dementia. Nevertheless, she knew the ins and outs of the park.
Rescuers frantically looked for Noppe and Max. Thousands of people joined a Facebook page created to facilitate the search for Noppe.
Eventually, the police dog picked up a scent, prompting the rescuers to power down their all-terrain vehicles (ATV), so they could listen closely to their surroundings. Then, they heard Noppe’s dog barking.
Rescuers located Noppe and her dog about a hundred yards from the park’s path. Her family said that she was doing well although she had bruises and scrapes. She also suffered from dehydration.
Everybody praises Max
Noppe’s son was obviously proud of what Max did. He said that what the dog did for his mother proved how loyal he was.
For Max’s heroic efforts, two local fire departments named him as an official fire dog. The said title would make him an official member of the said fire departments and grant him associated rights, honors, and privileges.
Other than his new designation, Max received a delicious reward – a steak!
