Family hails dog a hero
    2018-06-14  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE family of a 2-year-old U.S. girl are hailing their dog a hero after she stayed by the missing toddler’s side for two days until she was found safe.

Charlee Campbell went missing last week from her grandmother’s home in Lebanon Junction, Kentucky.

Search crews had spent two days searching for the toddler who had wandered into the woods.

But she wasn’t alone. Her loyal canine pal, Penny the pit bull, stayed by her side until they both safely returned home Saturday.

“This is our hero right here,” Beth Campbell, Charlee’s grandmother, told WIS-TV.

Campbell said she believes that Penny stayed by her granddaughter’s side the entire time she was missing.

“When my dog didn’t come home, and my baby wasn’t home, she was not going to leave that baby until she got here,” Campbell said about Penny.

According to the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office, Penny arrived home just moments before Charlee was found by neighbors.

“Charlee’s amazing survival story continued tonight when she walked up on a porch on Roy Layne Road this evening,” police said on Facebook.

“The homeowners realized who she was and contacted authorities. Ironically, her dog returned home on its own a few minutes prior to Charlee approaching the homeowners,” the statement said.

Police said Charlee had no obvious serious injuries, but she did appear dehydrated and had some tick bites.

She was taken to a local hospital for evaluation Saturday.

Despite Charlee returning home safe with her beloved dog Penny, police are still conducting an investigation into her disappearance. (SD-Agencies)
