This Heroic Dog Saved Hundreds Of Animals From The Australian Bushfires
January 11, 2020
A 6-year-old kelpie-border collie mix named Patsy faced the raging fires to herd 900 sheep into a safe enclosure.
When the fire closed in on the tiny Victoria town of Corryong on New Year’s Eve, Patsy sprang into action to herd her 900 sheep into a safe paddock away from the moving fire front.
Patsy's owner Stephen Hill told SBS News he never would have been able to save the sheep without her.
"She's earned front-seat privileges for the rest of her life," Hill said.
This is Patsy just after she and her human brought the sheep to safety on the morning of New Year’s Eve. Cool as a cucumber, Patsy waited with him until the fire got close enough to fight with a tractor and water pump. What a team! #patsythecorryongwonderdog #strongincorryong
Hill said several sheds burned down and Patsy managed to remain calm even as smoke covered the entire property.
According to Patsy's Instagram page, the sheep are now "safe and sound."
