A dog in North Dakota is being hailed for saving the life of a 3 year old boy. The young boy had wandered off on his family’s 10-acre farm when left out to play. Carson Urness and his dog then disappeared to the farm at around 7:30 p.m.
Courtney Urness later realized that Carson and his dog Cooper were missing. When she and her husband couldn’t find Carson in a frantic search, they called authorities for help. They quickly started an aerial and ground search with the help of 200 neighbors.
At around 2:30 a.m., the temperature had dropped to 40 degrees and organizers were about to call the search off for the night when a four-wheeler doing one last sweep of the farm saw Cooper stick his head out of the tall grass in the middle of a field about a mile from the house. They found the dog lying on the boy. They dog kept the boy warm all along.
‘Mom, I was really scared but Cooper laid on me, he kept me warm,’” said the young boy
