This story is an example of survival and strength. It shows the difference a dog can make in your life. When you become a dog owner, you quickly learn how loyal and loving a dog is. They will do anything they can to protect you.

This was the case for Annette Poitras who, thanks to the three dogs she was walking, was able to survive two nights lost in the woods.

Annette was walking in the woods of Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada, near where she lives, with three dogs: a Collie named Chloe, a Boxer named Roxy and a Puggle named Bubba. In a remote area, rarely frequented by hikers, she suddenly slipped and hurt her back and side. She heard a helicopter pass by but was unable to signal to it.

Marcel Poitras (center), Annette’s husband, said the dogs helped his wife stay alive. You may be wondering, “what about her cellphone?” Unfortunately, Annette lost her cellphone when she fell. Marcel said one of the dog was the guard, another one searched for food and the third one cuddled Annette to keep her warm.
