Abandoned dog called Hero saves lives of 10 newborn puppies and their mother after leading rescuers to the freezing litter

An abandoned dog has saved the lives of ten sick, newborn puppies and their weak mother after incessantly barking to alert passersby and then leading them to the dogs' location in dense woods.

The Labrador mix, who has since been named Hero, had spent weeks eluding members of Dallas Dogrrr-Rescue, Rehab, Reform in Texas, who were trying to rescue him from a south Dallas park.

But on Tuesday night, he greeted rescuer Marina Tarashevsce and dog behaviorist John Miller with persistent barking. Every time the pair moved closer to him, Hero inched backward and barked.

Deciding that the dog was trying to alert them to something, Ms Tarahevsce and Mr Miller followed him into nearby woodland. A short while later, they came across a burnt-out tree, situated by a creek.

Thankful: The rescue worker, also an animal rights activist, added: 'I still can't believe it, that he actually led me to the puppies. But I'm so thankful because we wouldn't have found them otherwise
