Labrador Retriever Keeps Missing Missing Boy Safe and Alive

Credit goes out to a loyal family Labrador Retriever, who helped save the life of a missing South Carolina toddler.

According to reports, on Friday night, Tyler Jacobson, a 22-month-old toddler, dressed in only a T-shirt and diaper, had wandered off into the woods surrounding his South Carolina home.

After being reported missing by his mother, police searched the area on foot and with an infrared-equipped helicopter but had no luck. Police decided to call off the search until the next morning due to high winds and the darkness.

Shortly after the morning search began, a neighbor reported hearing crying from the woods about a quarter-mile from the family's home. Police found an uninjured Tyler huddled up with his loyal Labrador Retriever, Skyler.

Police state that the Labrador Retriever apparently kept watch over the boy throughout the night, as temperatures dropped down into the 40s. Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews has stated that "I believe that the dog being with him is what kept him alive".
