Dog Sticks By Missing Toddler’s Side Until Rescuers Find Them Both

We are not worthy for dogs. A few months ago I told you this when we heard about a dog that went up to a man at the airport and comforted him. Honestly if everyone could have a doggo as a companion in life, I think we would be very close to World Peace.

If Donald Trump brought a bunch of golden retriever puppies to Kim Jong Un as a peace offering for this Nuclear meeting they are about to have, I think we would not be steps away from Nuclear War.

Anyways, this dog that we are about to meet is one of the best good boys I’ve seen in awhile.

A family was missing their two-year-old girl for two days. Search crews had been looking for Charlee Campbell in nearby woods after she went missing from her grandmother’s home in Lebanon Junction, Kentucky.

When their dog, Penny, didn’t come home after Charlee went missing, her grandmother, Beth Campbell, had a good feeling they were together. Campbell talked to Wis-TV and said:

“Whenever they told me that they had found Mo, Charlee, I was just outside of myself. I was just so happy.

When my dog didn’t come home, and my baby wasn’t home, she was not going to leave that baby until she got here.

This is our hero right here.”

I really hope that this story helps drive home the point that Pit Bulls are the vicious animals that the media puts them out to be. Penny looks like the sweetest pup and she is the one to thank since Charlee came home safe and sound.

The local sheriff’s office put out a statement when the two were found:

“Charlee’s amazing survival story continued tonight when she walked up on a porch on Roy Layne Road this evening.

The homeowners realized who she was and contacted authorities. She has no obvious serious injuries but did appear dehydrated and had some tick bites.

She is en route to the hospital for evaluation. Ironically, her dog returned home on its own a few minutes prior to Charlee approaching the homeowners.

We cannot thank enough the firefighters, EMT’s, dispatchers, search teams, other public safety agencies and the volunteer searchers from the community. Bullitt County residents always step up to help each other. #CharleeIsSafe #WeAreBullittCounty”

Beth Campbell went onto say:

“I can’t even explain how happy that I am that this baby is home, because I love her more than anything in this world.”

Charlee is recovering nicely after heading to the hospital to get checked out. The man that found her, Wayne Brown, thought it was interesting that the police couldn’t find her. Brown is a nearby neighbor and had been praying for the safe return of Charlee when he saw her in his backyard. He questioned the search committee saying:

“They’ve been everywhere. They’ve been all over this place, and how did they not find this child, and she just shows up where the search has been. How does that happen?”

Either way, we are grateful that Penny was with Charlee to keep her safe during her time of need!
