Amazing dogs work together to save their elderly owner who had collapsed.

The two dogs have been called “amazing” after they helped rescue their owner who had collapsed and fallen unconscious. The 71-year-old owner collapsed in the Lake District on Braithwaite How on Saturday morning.

The pets worked together to rescue their owner. One dog stayed by its owner’s side. The other dog set off to find help.

The man’s black Labrador managed to chase down a walker that they had passed previously. Luckily the walk decided to follow the Labrador.

When she found the unconscious man his golden retriever was faithfully at his side. The emergency services were called and the Keswick Mountain Rescue Team swung into action.

The Keswick Mountain Rescue Team took to Instagram to comment on the rescue. They said: “Yesterday a 71 year old man was out on his own walking his dogs on Braithwaite How. A few minutes after passing another walker he had an apparent seizure, collapsed and became unconscious. Incredibly one of his dogs, a black labrador, ran after the passing walker barking to get her attention and tried to get her to return, which she duly did.

“She found the other dog, a golden retriever, lying by the unconscious man. She phoned 999 for assistance and Keswick MRT sent out a vehicle with other team members going direct.

“By the time the team had arrived the man had regained consciousness and after an assessment by a team medic he was able to walk down the hill to an awaiting ambulance. He was then taken to hospital for further checks.

“Many thanks to the passing walker and the amazing dogs.”
