Family dog finds, rescues, and protects missing 3-year-old

COOPERSTOWN, N.D.  (CNN) —  A family dog is being called a hero after he found and rescued a 3-year-old who had wandered away from home in North Dakota Tuesday.

Carson Urness, 3, was playing in his yard Monday night when he wandered away.

When the boy didn’t come inside for dinner, his mother began to panic.

After she called 911, rescue crews showed up and began to search.

As it began to rain, the family quickly realized the family dog “Cooper” was also missing.

They hoped he was with Carson.

Hours later, about 2 a.m., Carson was found about a mile away, safely tucked under his dog, Cooper, who was shielding him from rain and wind.

The boy was take to the hospital and expected to be OK.
