A loyal dog protected his young owner when he got lost in Florida. Buddy the pit bull helped police find the missing three-year-old boy who had wandered away from home and into the woods.

According to the Suwannee County Sheriff's office Buddy stood guard and stayed with the boy while officers and a K9 unit searched for him. Like a scene of Lassie, Buddy lead deputies to the missing youngster. The boy is fine and has been reunited with his family, thanks to his pet.

“It was such a good ending to something that could have been tragic,” says Sheriff Sam St.John, “We’re all the time putting out tragic news. I’m telling you, it feels so good, so good to tell a good story.”
