VIDEO: Dog saves sheep flock from Australian wildfires

A six-year-old border collie helped save a flock of sheep from the raging wildfires in Australia.

Patsy, the Corryong Wonder Dog, brought her 900-strong flock into a safe paddock to protect them from the blaze.

Cath Hill took to social media on January 3rd to share the story: “Allow me to introduce Patsy, the wonder dog. In the early hours of December 31st, 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 the sheep are safe, along with the hay bales and silage, the shearing shed, and both farmhouses.”

“My brother doesn’t do social media, but Patsy does. Great job little girl.” the social media post concluded.
