Patsy the shepherd-mix fearlessly worked away to ensure hundreds of sheep got to safety.

 

They say a dog is a man’s best friend, and Patsy the sheepdog proved how true this was on New Year’s Eve.When her owner, Stephen Hill, spotted a fire heading toward his cousin’s farm in Corryong in Victoria, Australia, he went straight over to help out, with Patsy, a shepherd-mix, at his side.

 

At 4:15 a.m. the dog got to work. Thanks to her night vision, courage, and shepherding talents, Patsy managed to bring 220 sheep to safety, in a barn untouched by the fire. Only six of the herd succumbed to the flames.

“If you haven’t got a good dog, you can’t do so much with the sheep. They’re really difficult to move in any way, shape or form unless you have a good dog,” Hill shared with NBC news. Patsy truly is a wonder dog!

 

With experts estimating that the fires have killed over a billion wildlife so far, efforts such as those made by Patsy are crucial. With so much loss of human and animal life, a story like this can lift hopes and make us grateful for the gift God has given us in dogs like Patsy.
