the Lurcher and Sacha the Husky were inseparable friends. Tessa had mothered
Sacha when she joined the family at only six weeks old, and the two dogs really
loved each other. So much so that Sacha risked her life to save her friend.
The two dogs were out for a walk with their master, when Tessa spotted some
ducks and set off in hot pursuit. It was bitterly cold, and the canal was frozen
over. The ice bore the weight of the ducks, but not poor Tessa who fell right
through, and was way out of her depth. Almost immediately Sacha streaked into
action, raced onto the ice and into the water, where she grabbed Tessa by the
scruff of the neck and dragged her friend through the icy water to the bank
where their thankful owner helped them out.
The rescue has amazed dog behavioural experts who said that Siberian Huskies have
specific traits for operating in a pack and maybe there was something in Sacha's
genetic memory which told her to respond when she saw her friend in trouble.
