Hero dogs Heroic hounds save victim of rural Shropshire car crash « Shropshire Star On the day of the accident, the two Dobermans inexplicably stopped in their tracks before straining at their leads to go in the opposite direction. Their confused walkers decided to let the dogs lead them to where they wanted to go. And they were stunned as the eight-year-old dogs started barking after uncovering the scene of a crash over a mile away. The woman driver, in her 40s, had rolled her Ford Ka on its roof and ended up down an embankment on an isolated country road in Clive, near Wem. Sam and Emily quickly called for an ambulance to free the woman. Trainee army officer Sam, who was walking Storm at about 11.20am last Tuesday hailed the hero dogs as real-life Lassies.
