Lost boy kept warm by puppies

When I first saw the above headline in my Facebook news feed I brushed it off as sarcasm, perhaps another headline from The Onion. Curiosity got the better of me and I clicked on the link.

What I then found was one of the sweetest news stories I have read in quite a while.

A 10-year-old boy with Downs Syndrome was reported missing in Hackleburg, AL,  earlier this week. About 150 volunteers gathered to search for the boy.

One volunteer followed his dog along a creek and found the missing boy cuddled up with his dog’s puppies. Presumably, the dog and puppies had kept the boy warm overnight until he was discovered.

What a great story and wonderful reminder of how amazing animals truly are.
