Police: Dog Protected Three Year Old Reported Missing

Posted: Updated:

A dog once saved by a North Dakota family pays back the favor by saving their three-year-old son.

The Urness Family called 911 after their son, Carson, went missing from the family farm Monday night.

A search team of nearly 200 people scoured the area looking for the child. The family then realized their dog, Cooper, was also missing.

"You think of the worst, but then I knew Cooper was gone. If anyone was going to find him, they'd just have to find Cooper," said Carson's Mom Courtney Urness.

Firefighters found the pair Tuesday morning a mile from the home with Carson under the protective dog safe and sound.

"Somebody came and knocked on the door and said we found them and I just ran to the ambulance," said Courtney.

Three-year old Carson has been pretty quiet about the ordeal until he shared something today with his mother.

“He came up to me today and he goes ‘Mom I was really scared, but Cooper laid on me. He kept me warm.’ And I said what about your feet? And he said ‘no, not those’,” Courtney said.
