Penny Blackwell thought her two golden retrievers were gone forever. Baxter and Bailey had been tied together when they got loose on September 26. Two weeks later, after posting fliers and pleas on Facebook to no avail, Blackwell had almost given up hope.
But then something remarkable happened: Baxter showed up at a friend’s house. And then something even more astonishing: he led Blackwell through the woods to where his brother was trapped by the leash. It’s an special story of survival, courage, and loyaltythree characteristics we cherish in our dogs.
