A Dachshund named Razor heroically came to the rescue of a St. Bernard who got stuck in a cold, muddy ditch for around 18 hours.
The St. Bernard named Jazzy got loose from Tim Chavez’s home in New Mexico on Sunday afternoon.
Razor tried alerting Chavez that something was wrong on Monday morning, while Chavez was getting ready to go to work.
But the dog owner told KRQE News 13 that he didn’t realize at the time that Razor was trying to let him know something was wrong at the time.
A Dachshund wasn’t going to let his buddy down and kept trying to get someone’s attention.
He barked at the neighbor too, but it wasn’t until a passerby noticed Razor’s frantic barking and followed him, that Jazzy was discovered.
“Razor took off through the field, along the irrigation ditch, and showed up here,” Chavez told KRQE at the location where Jazzy was rescued.
“This is the spot Jazzy was actually stuck in; she was stuck here at least two feet stuck into the mud.”
They quickly called for help and 8 members from Belen Fire & Rescue arrived to pull the big dog out of the ditch.
Using backboard straps and a long spine board they managed to pull the big dog do safety. Here’s footage of Jazzy’s rescue!
Thanks to Razor’s persistence, Jazzy is alive. The city of Belen plans on honoring Razor for his actions. As for Dachshund, he’s just happy his buddy is back by his side.
