Lost and Found
Amazing Animals

Cheshire, England


Saint Bernards are famous for rescuing people. Jake the Saint Bernard is famous for rescuing himself! Jake had been missing for several days when Lindsey Pearce saw the family pet on TV. Apparently Jake had limped into a hospital four miles from home and plopped himself down next to the patients in the waiting room!

A FURRY GOOD PATIENT  Stunned doctors called a veterinarian, who treated the pooch’s sore paws. Owner Derek Pearce retrieved the dog from the vet, but it wasn’t the first time he had to get Jake out of trouble. “He’s a little daft,” he says. “He goes down to the river and gets himself stuck in the mud.”
