When two little sisters got lost in the woods, their golden retriever helped and took care of them.
It was thanks to the dog that the girls could be found at a distance of about 2 km from the house.
This story takes place in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Abigail, 7, and Cecilia, 4, were playing in the yard, but after a while, the girls quieted down.
When the mother came out to see what was the matter, they were nowhere to be found.
The woman, in a panic, immediately called the local emergency service. “I was very scared and didn’t understand where my children were at all!”
But not only girls disappeared, but also a dog named Artemis.
“They were playing with the dog in the yard, and now they are gone. I’ve looked around, but there’s no one!”
An urgent search party of more than a hundred people was immediately organized. There were also volunteers who agreed to help, drones and even a helicopter were involved.
The search lasted 5 hours. The sisters and the dog were nevertheless found in the forest, about 2 km from the house. The girls were frightened and sat pressed against each other.
The devoted dog vigilantly watched the little ones, protected them and warmed them.
Artemis immediately began to bark as soon as he heard people approaching, which helped the search party to find the missing people.
Abigail held Artemis tightly with one arm and her sister with the other. And Cecilia lay down on the dog’s belly. They were preparing to spend the night in the forest.
Parents remember this day with horror.
“It was very scary, the unknown was frightening… We didn’t scold our daughters, we just sat silently and hugged.”
In addition, the family is very grateful to the dog Artemis for being there all the time, not leaving the girls and guarding them.
