Although the bushfire was tearing through farmland and moving ever closer toward Pasty and her owner, the two ventured out to ensure the sheep were as safe as could be. Pasty the dog fearlessly rounded up the sheep and herded them away from the blaze, making sure they were at the safest paddock on the farm.

“Allow me to introduce Patsy the wonder dog,” Mrs Hill wrote. “In the early hours of 31 December 2019, while fire in Corryong was bearing down … she and my brother rounded up the sheep and brought them to the safest paddock on the farm as I fought the fire in a tractor with a tank of water.”

Allow me to introduce Patsy the wonder dog. In the early hours of 31 December 2019, while fire in Corryong was bearing down them, she and my brother rounded up the sheep and brought them to the safest paddock on the farm. She then found a safe spot while my brother fought the fire with a tractor and a tank of water. Almost all sheep are safe, along with the hay bales and silage, the shearing shed, and both farm houses. My brother doesn’t do social media, but Patsy does.
