Brava Patsy!

And H/T to TAM Cynthia


An heroic border collie rounded up a flock of sheep and herded them away from a blaze working its way towards their farm in Australia.

The adorable working dog, Patsy, and her unnamed owner braved the bushfires on New Year’s Eve as they burned through the rural town of Corryong in Victoria, Australia.

Though the flames were creeping ever closer to Patsy’s owner’s land, man and dog ventured out to ensure the sheep were as safe as could be.

Cath Hill, the sister of the border collie’s owner, shared a picture of the ‘wonder dog’ on social media, where she said Patsy helped round up the flock and direct them to the ‘safest paddock on the farm’ before heading back out to the front line….

GoFundMe pages have been set up to aid local areas, while bigger charities like the Australian Red Cross are also taking donations.
