    Default Puppy helps save a young boy

    A 2-year old boy may owe his life to his 4-month old puppy companion, Stanley. The boy wandered away from home on Saturday night while his father was sleeping on the couch. When the father woke up, he noticed that the door was open, and his child and 4-month old puppy were missing.
    A lost child is every parent's worst nightmare. Lost in the woods, at night, with colder than normal temperatures, is all the more frightening. Ashley Teafatiller, the boy's mother, said that every worse case scenario rushed through her mind while more than 100 searchers combed the woods outside of her Lewis County home.
    Around 11 pm, a Toledo firefighter located the lost child, wearing only a t-shirt and socks, in the woods about 1 mile from home. Investigators believe that Stanley's body heat helped to keep the boy warm.
    The firefighter who found the boy was using a handheld thermal imaging device. Investigators believe that not only did the puppy help keep Stanley warm in the chilly weather, but that his added body heat assisted the thermal imaging device in locating the pair.
    Thankfully, searchers were able to locate the little boy and his puppy before the elements, or the predators in the woods, got to him first. Stanley is a true hero.
    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog
    You are his life, his love, his leader
    He will be yours, faithful and true,
    to the last beat of his heart
    You owe it to him to be worthy of
    such devotion
