While some people are advised against owning pit bulls, reasoning that the breed is unpredictable and aggressive, one family hails their pit bull pet for saving a family member. For them, they would have not reunited with the two-year-old Charlee Campbell if not because of their dog, Penny.
The Campbell toddler went missing from her grandmother’s home in Lebanon Junction, Kentucky recently, and was believed to have wandered into the woods. While Charlee is now out of the woods, literally and figuratively speaking, her family believes that she would have not been found if not because of Penny.
It is believed that Penny kept the 2-year-old Charlee company during her 2-day disappearance.
According to Beth Campbell, she believes that her granddaughter was not alone throughout her unplanned adventure in the woods. After all, the missing toddler and dog returned at almost the same time two days after.
“When my dog didn’t come home, and my baby wasn’t home, she was not going to leave that baby until she got here,” said the elder Campbell.
How a two-year-old survived in the woods for two days and only in the company of a dog amazed the authorities.
In a Facebook post, the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office revealed that the dog returned home just before Charlee was found by neighbors, which makes it very likely that the toddler and Penny had been together all along.
The statement said:
“Charlee’s amazing survival story continued tonight when she walked up on a porch on Roy Layne Road this evening. The homeowners realized who she was and contacted authorities. Ironically, her dog returned home on its own a few minutes prior to Charlee approaching the homeowners.”
Thankfully, other than insect bites, Charlee was unharmed when she was found.
While the toddler appeared dehydrated and had some tick bites when she was found, luckily, she had no serious injuries. Nonetheless, she was still brought to the hospital immediately for evaluation.
Authorities also thanked its people and the public for their contributions on the search and rescue of the two-year old toddler, including the firefighters, EMT’s, dispatchers, search teams, other public safety agencies, and the volunteer searchers from the community.
It has also been revealed that, despite Charlee and Penny being now back safely, investigations on how the child disappeared will continue.
