When three young girls went missing, rescue authorities didn’t expect the one to find them would be a tiny Chihuahua named Belle.

The girls from Georgia in the US, eight-year-olds Carlie Parga and Victoria Baker along with Carlie’s five-year-old sister Lacey, were taking their dog Lucy for a walk down their street when Lucy picked up a scent in the nearby woods and led the girls off their usual path.

When the girls didn’t return from their walk, their frantic parents called authorities and a search was launched.

Police, the fire brigade and the police canine unit were all called out to the search, but it was neighbour Carvin Young’s three-year-old Chihuahua, Belle, who saved the day.

She located the girls after they had been missing in the woods for more than two hours.

Carvin said that as soon as he knew the girls were missing he joined the search and took his dog with him. Belle soon picked up the girls’ scent and began running until she reached them.

“She started wagging her tail and scratching and jumping up on me,” Carvin said.

“She is a good dog and everybody loves her.”

Carlie and Lacey Parga’s mum, Rebecca, said her daughters play with Belle almost every day and the dog is very familiar with them.

All three girls, who say they were scared after becoming lost, were found unhurt.
