This is a story of a dog named Tillie and how she saved the life of her friend, by staying with her for a week until help arrived! This is going to warm your heart!
The search was on for an adorable basset hound called Phoebe who was stuck in a well, deep in a ravine in the woods and Tillie a setter. No one knew where they were and they’d been stuck for about a week with no food or water, or a blanket to keep them warm in the chilly nights.Tillie wasn’t stuck, but even then she refused to leave her friend all alone in the well.
Although no one knows how Phoebe ended up stuck in the well, the fact was that she couldn’t climb out. Both from Washington, these pups were lost for about a week until they were rescued by the nonprofit animal rescue called Vashon Island Pet Protectors.
Since Tillie wasn’t stuck, she occasionally went to a family living on the property and as soon as they saw her, she’d hint them back into the ravine. As soon as someone called the Vashon Island Pet Protectors, the adorable fur babies were discovered.
On their Facebook page, the animal rescue were quoted saying, “We received a call from a community member reporting that for the past few days a ‘reddish’ dog had been coming up to them when they were out on their property and then promptly heading back into a ravine.”
This is how they found Phoebe with Tillie by her side! The poor dogs were fed and now they’re doing just fine! Don’t forget to SHARE this remarkable rescue with your friends 🙂
