Sassy is a 9-year-old Chihuahua.
Sassy weighs only a few pounds, but she has the heart of a lion.
She lives in Inverness, Citrus County, Florida, with her owner, 92-year-old Marie Alexander who had rescued Sassy from a shelter when she was a pup, and trained Sassy to only bark when the doorbell rings.
One day, as Marie went out to retrieve the mail, she turned her ankle and crumpled to the ground where no one could see her.
For five hours, Sassy continuously barked for help, and tried chasing down every car that passed.
Finally, a couple walking by heard Sassy and saw Marie on the ground.
Marie was hospitalized with severe dehydration and some bruised ribs. But Sassy undoubtedly saved her life.
