It seemed like just a regular day for Marie Alexander when she went outside with Sassy, her saved Chihuahua, to get the mail.
The 92-year-old woman rescued Sassy from a shelter and both have actually been inseparable since, even with minor tasks like going outside to take the mail. However what most of us would think about a mundane job turned into a life-threatening event for Alexander. While outside, she turned her ankle and fell back her fence and bushes where no one could see her.
Seeing her owner in distress made Sassy take matters into her own hands … or paws. A normally peaceful dog, she started barking to call for help. She ran barking at vehicles that passed by in the street and strangers that just took place to be walking by.
Sassy attempted and tried and finally, after nearly 5 hrs of barking for help, her call was answered. A couple passing by recognized that Sassy wasn’t just a regular yappy Chihuahua; she was trying to get their interest for a reason.
Sassy led them directly to Alexander that was bruised, bug bitten and dried out for being stuck outside so long. But thanks to Sassy and the couple walking by, she’s recovered and here to remain!
It’s amazing what our dogs will certainly do when we remain in trouble and Sassy proved that she was not pulling back. Her human was injured and in danger and she wasn’t about to give up trying to save her life. We’re so grateful she remained strong and never ever surrendered, and we know Marie Alexander is also! Sassy truly is a hero and proved just how much dogs will go to reveal their love and dedication to us.
