One brave pooch is being hailed a hero after sticking by her friend’s side for an entire week while they waited for help.

Tilly, a Setter mix, and Phoebe, a Basset Hound, went missing one day and no one had a clue where they ventured off to. It wasn’t until a man spotted a dog wandering into his yard daily that those who would engineer Tilly and Phoebe’s rescue got their first clue.

When the man tried to get near the dog, she would run off into a nearby ravine. With this information, the rescuers went to the ravine and discovered Tilly.

At first it was unclear why Tilly would be sitting alone in a wooded area.

After a second look it was crystal clear what Tilly’s intentions were.

The Setter mix wasn’t hanging out in the ravine by herself; she was waiting by her friend Phoebe’s side. Phoebe had fallen into cement water reservoir and needed help to get out.

Each time Tilly went into the man’s backyard she was desperately trying to get help for her friend.

Once rescuers recognized Phoebe’s predicament they sprang into action and helped the pup up from her unfortunate situation. The two were later reunited with their loved ones and probably won’t be taking a stroll through the ravine anytime soon.
