Patsy the wonder dog

A brave pup is being credited with saving an entire flock of sheep form impending brush fires in Australia on New Year's Eve. That's when Stephen Hill saw wildfires approaching his sister's farm in Corryong, Australia, around 4:15 p.m. Hill and his 6-year-old sheepdog Patsy rushed over to the farm; hopped on a 4-wheeler and rode out to where the sheep were wandering in the fields.

Quick as a flash, Patsy rounded up a herd of over 200 sheep and ushered them into a barn while the farm owner fended off the flames with a tractor and water pump. Thanks to Patsy's quick action, almost every one of the sheep were saved from the fires.  Hill said, "If you haven't got a dog, you can't to much with sheep. They're really difficult to move unless you have a good dog."
