More than half million animals have died in the Australian wildfires that is still flaming at the country. People all over the world are trying to help by donating and Australian people are still fighting the strong fires.

Patsy, the hero of today’s story, helped saving her family’s farm and their flock of sheep.

The 6-year old dog didn’t escape from the fuming wildfire in Corryong in Upper Murray, Victoria, Australia. In contrary, he stayed with his family and helped them taking the flock of sheep to a safe place.

In the meantime, the paterfamilias extinguished the flames with a water tank. With the help of the rest of the family including Patsy, they managed to save themselves and their farm.

Cath Hill shared a story of the farm on social media and it went viral. She posted: “I never dreamed that it would go this far. I just wanted to show friends and family that we were ok, that we were still here, and that even in the devastation we had so much to be grateful for.”

A photo of Patsy sitting on a scorched field was taken by Hill when she arrived at the farm.

“This is Patsy just after she and her human brought the sheep to safety on the morning of New Year’s Eve. Cool as a cucumber, Patsy waited with him until the fire got close enough to fight with a tractor and water pump,” was a caption on one of the photos.

Hill told The Metro, “It’s like Armageddon.” The fires are quickly spreading and destroying everything in their paths. She went on to say, “Everyone is just trying to get water and feed to their animals, shoot the ones that can’t be saved, get temporary fences up to keep stock secure, and put out all the logs and stumps still burning. And there’s people who have nothing left but the clothes on their backs.”

“Patsy and her human really appreciate all the support coming from all over the world 🙂 but unfortunately these fires aren’t over and won’t be for weeks. And the recovery from the fire damage will take months, years even.”


Patsy now has her own Instagram and she got more than 3K followers in just 2 days and her family is amazed by the support.

The family wanted to share Patsy’s story to spread some joy. “It’s unbelievable and it’s only going to get worse. That’s why we put Patsy’s story out there. People need something positive.”

Amazing job, Patsy! We all owe you for your bravery.
