Two British dogs recently rescued their elderly owner while on a hike on Braithwaite How in the mountain region of northern England.

The 71-year-old man collapsed unconscious during the hike, while his black Labrador Retriever went searching for help as the Golden Retriever stayed by his side as protection.

The Lab found a woman they’d met earlier in the day, leading her to the man in need, and the other hiker called the Keswick Mountain Rescue Team, who took the man to the hospital for further observation.
