After an elderly woman has shown her kindness and offered her a home, this lifesaving Chihuahua finds the perfect way to repay the debt โ€“ save her life. The tiny dog is hailed as a hero after saving its 92-year-old owner by barking for almost five hours.

Ever since they first met, Marie Alexander, a high school senior from Inverness, Florida, and Sassy, a rescued dog, had a very special bond. Soon they became inseparable and comforted each other in the most charming ways. But the tiny dog turned out to be more than just a companion and fluffy therapist to a 92-year-old lady. She showed that she could be a hero too!

One morning, Marie went outside to check the mailbox, but lost her balance and fell to the ground. To top it all off, Marie left her cell phone at the house, so, unable to move, she was now at the mercy of fate. But Sassy immediately realized that her owner needed help, and she took a step forward trying to help her. A faithful dog could have picked Marie up, but instead, she could bark until someone heard her and came to the rescue. And so she did!

โ€œWhen I went to step on the path, my foot rolled up, and I just fell back,โ€ said Marie to the journalist ABC Action News. โ€œShe hit every car that passed by. Sassy would come and lie down next to me and lick my face every time.โ€

For nearly five hours, Sassy stayed by Marieโ€™s side and constantly barked and followed every car that was passing by. Both exhausted due to the hot temperatures, Sassy and Marie didnโ€™t give up, and eventually, the dogโ€™s incredible efforts paid off as a couple heard her and went to investigate the reason she was desperately barking.

Thankfully, the help arrived just in time, and Marie was immediately taken to the hospital. She was very dehydrated and suffered bruised ribs, but sheโ€™ll soon recover. All thanks to her very loyal furry friend!

โ€œI saved her at the shelter and she saved me,โ€ the woman said. โ€œPeople donโ€™t give animals credit for what they do!โ€
