I’m pretty sure when they were casting “Lassie”, they never considered a small, yelping, ankle-biting Chihuahua as the lead. But this story proves that good dogs are good dogs, their size and breed doesn’t matter.
An 86-year-old Navy veteran named Rudy Armstrong lives on a houseboat in Oriental, North Carolina with his Chihuahua, Boo-Boo.
Last week, Rudy had a STROKE. And he couldn’t get to his phone to call for help because he couldn’t move one of his arms or legs.
So he said, quote, “Okay, Boo-Boo, go get me some help.” And Boo-Boo DID. She went running off the boat and brought back the dockmaster, who called 911.
Rudy was in the hospital for five days before he was reunited with Boo-Boo. Quote, “I’ve got tears running out of my eyes. Missed her so much, man.”
