Real-Life “Lassie” Rescue Story

Police responded at about 10 p.m. Monday to a report of a loose dog on the bridge of an interstate at the New Hampshire-Vermont state border and they found what they believed was a large German shepherd.

When they approached her, she ran away but not completely. So, they followed her to where they found a damaged section of the guardrail, and then found a badly-damaged pickup truck that had rolled over.

Police then found two people who had been ejected from the truck and were seriously injured and hypothermic as a result of the crash. The trooper and the officers then quickly called for medical assistance.

The dog is a 1-year-old Shiloh shepherd named Tinsley. Tinsley’s owner, Cam Laundry, said he is thankful for his “co-pilot” and is spoiling her for saving him.
