This Dog Stood Guard for Nearly a Week to Protect Its Friend Who Got Trapped in a Ravine
A settler named Tillie and a basset hound named Phoebe went missing in Washington for a full week—until rescuers realized that their friendship kept them safe the whole time.
Volunteers at Vashon Island Pet Protectors got a call from a local resident, who reported that a "reddish" dog had been coming up to them while they were outside, then quickly going back to the ravine. It turns out that it was Tillie, trying to get the humans to help her friend. The group posted what happened next :
So with a needle in the haystack hope we made our way into the ravine and after a bit of searching, finally heard that sweet sound we have been waiting for all week. A small one-woof response when we called out "Tillie." A few minutes later we found her laying beside an old cistern with her head resting on the concrete wall. Heart sinking...we knew that meant Phoebe was inside the cistern and every breath was held and every doggie prayer offered that the peek over the rim would somehow find her safe.
It turns out that Phoebe was indeed safe; she had perched on some concrete rubble and kept herself out of the water for almost a full week. Tillie stood by and kept an eye on her for the entire time, except for the brief moments she ran off to find help.
According to KING-TV, both dogs were cold and hungry, but still healthy. The rescuers want people to know that a missing dog is likely just stuck somewhere, and likely won't make a noise, even if you're calling from a few feet away. So there's always hope if your best pal goes missing. "A round of applause to the awesome and amazing Miss Tillie," the group wrote on Facebook.
