Wonderful Beings: Border Collie Saves Flock of Sheep from Australian Fires

A heroic border collie rounded up a flock of sheep and moved them away from a blaze going towards their farm in Australia.

The cutest-ever working dog named Patsy and her owner fought with the bushfires during New Year’s Eve that were scorching through the rural town of Corryong, Victoria.

Despite the flames being closer and closer to their land, the brave dog and man managed to protect their sheep.

The sister of the Patsy’s owner, Cath Hill, shared a photo of the dog on social media and wrote how Patsy was helping direct the flock to the safest part of the farm before going back to the front line and assist her owner.

Brave Dog Helps Man Save His Sheep from Fires

Thanks to the dedication and hard work of her owner and Patsy, all sheep were saved from the fires, as well as their farm houses, the shearing shed, and the silage and hay bales.

Cath compared this bushfire crisis to Armageddon and said that farmers like her and her brother are trying their best to give food and water to their animals, shoot the ones that can’t be saved, get short-term fences to secure stock, and put out stumps and logs that are still burning.

She also noted that the recent drop in temperatures has averted the fires from spreading fast like they did before; however, since this is only the middle of the summer season, she fears the worst is yet to come.

This is why they shared the story of Patsy with the public because people need something positive in this immense crisis.

The video of helpful dog Patsy has been shared more than 5000 times and Cath is using the chance to ask for donations to help in the fight.

There are GoFundMe pages as well as bigger charities like Australian Red Cross are also taking in donations.

Before heading out, don’t forget to check out the video of the amazing dog that helped her owner save its sheep:

Allow me to introduce Patsy the wonder dog. In the early hours of 31 December 2019, while fire in Corryong was bearing down them, she and my brother rounded up the sheep and brought them to the safest paddock on the farm. She then found a safe spot while my brother fought the fire with a tractor and a tank of water. Almost all sheep are safe, along with the hay bales and silage, the shearing shed, and both farm houses. My brother doesn’t do social media, but Patsy does.
