A German Shepherd is currently being labeled as a hero after they led the police to a car wreckage where their injured owner was trapped in.
Initially, the New Hampshire police thought that Tinsley, the German Shepherd dog, was lost when they found her out by herself.
Little did they know that the dog wanted to show the officers that her injured owner was trapped in a car.
Talking about the incident, Lt. Daniel Baldassarre of the New Hampshire State Police said that Tinsley was showing behavior that led them to understand that she wanted to be follow.
The good thing is that the police officers paid attention to Tinsley and followed her to a damaged guardrail, which was near a Vermont interstate junction across the state line.
During an interview with Fox 13 News, Baldassarre said:
[They] look down to where the dog is looking at, it’s just, they were almost in disbelief.
The Vermont State Police arrived on the scene right after a New Hampshire State Trooper and the Police from a nearby city of Lebanon responded to the crash scene.
The police officers found the driver and passenger lying in snow right next to the truck, which had rolled over as a result of the crash.
Tinsley stood by her owner, however, a bulldog, who belonged to the other passenger of the truck, passed away in the incident.
The passenger and the driver of the truck were badly hurt in the crash, but thanks to the German SHepherd, they managed to get proper medical assistance.
Investigators of the incident later found out that the driver of the truck was intoxicated at the time of the incident.
The driver, who was not named, has been charged with Driving Under the Influence charges.
