“What’s that Lassie? Timmy fell down the well again?”
I grew up watching old black and white reruns of Lassie, in which a female collie’s owner, a young boy named Timmy, would regularly get into some sort of trouble and the dog would have to save the day. Lassie was something of a wonder dog who could save lives in 22 minutes once a week. It always seemed far-fetched that just a dog barking could lead to someone’s rescue, but it even happens in real life!
Now, when I think of heroic dogs, I think of German shepherds like Rin Tin Tin, or the Saint Bernards of the Alps. I definitely don’t think of dachshunds, or “wiener dogs.” I tend to think of wiener dogs as yappy, skittish dogs, but New Mexico dachshund Razor has proven that even these comically shaped pooches can be heroes.
Razor’s owner, ironically also named Tim, noticed something was wrong when he saw Razor barking and running around in circles. He initially thought Razor was just being hyperactive, but thanks to Razor’s determination and persistence, he ended up saving the life of his best friend, a giant Saint Bernard named Jazzy.
Read on, and don’t forget to watch the incredible footage of Razor seeing his pal get rescued.
