In November of 2013, a two-year-old kid, named Peyton, went missing in South Carolina for more than four hours. This caused extreme worry for his family. They went through an unexplainable pain of apprehension as to where the baby would be.
But no one knew that the family’s loyal dog was by his side throughout the ordeal and finally guided Peyton to safety.
Peyton Myrick, the cute little boy, had gotten lost in the woods outside Clover. He was with his grandfather, who was fixing their tractor so the two of them could go pick out a Christmas tree.
Peyton played with the family’s 2-year-old black and white Australian shepherd named Ashepoo, or Ash for short, while his grandfather worked on the tractor. Peyton and Ash were gone when Peyton’s grandfather attempted to back the tractor out.
He kept calling Peyton and worriedly sought him everywhere he possibly could, but there was no clue of the child’s whereabouts.
The little boy’s father was with his other kid at a pediatrician’s clinic while this episode took place. He got a call at that clinic that his son was missing, which obviously shocked him badly.
He immediately rushed back home.
The doctor and his crew followed him there in case there was some medical emergency to tackle.
A large-scale search for the youngster began soon after. A helicopter, Department of Natural Resources officers, sheriff’s deputies, police dogs, and a large number of friends and neighbors joined the search party.
Peyton’s family got increasingly concerned as night fell and temperatures dropped. Then, about 8:30 p.m., a group of rescuers discovered Ash.
Peyton was found behind a barn about a quarter-mile from his grandparents’ house, thanks to Ash. The two-year-old was fast sleeping on his jacket. The entire time, Ash has remained by his side.
Peyton happened to be nearby. The innocent little soul slept on his jacket unharmed and unmoved.
Peyton was cold and exhausted, but everything else was good. He’s doing well emotionally, too, describing his time trapped in the woods as an “adventure.”
Rich felt relieved and took back his boy for a routine medical check-up to ensure he was alright. The whole family was all-praise for the doggy, who guarded their son when anything could have happened to him. Another story of a dog’s unconditional loyalty and love towards man was written on hearts that day.
