Cops and firefighters in western Massachusetts rescued an injured dog Tuesday in a Lassie-like adventure that starred the pooch’s canine pal.
Jock, a 5-year-old Scottish terrier, approached an Orange Police Officer on Tuesday barking frantically and then led the officer across a field and down an icy, 30-foot embankment where Jock’s half-sibling Annabelle had become entangled in the underbrush.
Firefighters used a ladder to free Annabelle who was bleeding and in shock, according to the Boston Globe. She was taken to a veterinarian for a checkup.
“Apparently, any dog in the right circumstance can turn into Lassie,” Orange police said on their Facebook page.
The two dogs had run off hours earlier when their owner suffered a medical emergency at her home and was taken to the hospital. Police tried to catch Jock and Annabelle, but they kept running away.
