The video below was put together by surveillance footage at a home where the dogs were playing outside with Dad. The dogs continued to wander around as Mom got into the car and put it in reverse. She didn’t see the Chihuahua puppy behind her, but thankfully the Border Collie did.
The quick thinking and acting of the Border Collie saved the puppy’s life. The dog came running when he noticed what was about to happen and nabbed the puppy and ran off to safety. Mom saw something in the rearview mirror and came back to make sure everyone was okay.
They will surely be a bit more careful in the future in order to avoid another close call like this. But thanks to the Border Collie’s awareness and forward thinking, the pup is alive today. What a hero!
