When the 12-year-old dog was missing for several hours, his owners started to worry about him, they didn’t know where their dog Louie could be.
But the family got surprised, when he came back with a heartwarming note around his neck.
The smart sheepdog Louie lives with Marolyn Driver’s parents’ farm in New Zealand, since he was a little puppy.
When he was a few weeks old, he was a cheerful and curious pup full of energy, who liked wandering around their property, exploring their neighborhoods.
But when he grew up, his daily routine has changed, he started to hang out around their house.
That’s why, when one day, Louie didn’t appear for several hours, his parents started to concern about him.
It was exactly that day, when Marolyn decided to visit her parents, she found them in a deep worry.
But, happily, after some hours, the dog returned home with a strange note around his neck. Louie looked exhausted and dirty.
The family thought someone would harm him. But they calmed down after reading the handwritten note.
The note was from Rob, who wrote that Louis is his hero, as he led him to his dog Maddy, who was stuck under a branch pile.
Rob was the family’s neighbor farmer, who had a dog named Maddy. Soon they found out what happened to them.
That day, Maddy was missing, too. Her owner Rob started to look for her everywhere, she could be.
But the searching gave no result. Coming back home, he encountered Louie, who insisted Rob to follow him.
Rob trusting Louie’s instinct followed him and surprisingly found his missing dog stuck in bushes. Louie started to dig around, helping Rob to pull out his friend.
Thanks to this brave dog, Maddy was saved. The two exhausted dogs were running quickly to the nearby pond, then they jumped into the water and started to drink it.
That day, Louie was so tired, that he refused even to eat.
The family was concerned about his state, but the next day, when Louie saw his friend in a basket on his owner’s bicycle’s back, miraculously, recovered and started to play with his friend Maddy.
