A family in Alabama suffered the worst nightmare possible when a 10-year-old boy with Down syndrome went missing in 2012.
For nearly 20 terrifying hours, Kyle Camp was nowhere to be found. Thankfully, word spread fast throughout the small town, and the community came together to search for Kyle… but to no avail.
Then, something incredible happened. Early the next morning, the family barking Dog — who had recently delivered four puppies — started barking and running toward the rescuers.
The rescuers decided to follow the frantic dog, which took them a mile-and-a-half into the thick woods near Kyle’s home. Shockingly, there was Kyle sitting in a creek, cold and wet, surrounded by the mother dog’s four pups.
Authorities believe Kyle wandered off and followed the puppies into the forest. They also believe the four puppies piled on top of Kyle and kept him warm overnight, ultimately saving his life.
Other than some minor scrapes and bruises, Kyle was okay. His family attributes his rescue to the unsung heroes.
“We don’t know what would have happened to him had the puppies not been with him,” said Kyle’s dad. “And credit goes to the mother dog for leading me to the boy.”
