The Dogington Post reported the news saying that the “Minnesota boy is safe and sound today, thanks to the Minnesota State Patrol’s helicopter outfitted with a camera that detects heat signatures – and the boy’s loyal canine companion.”

According to Inside Edition: “Mason was playing outside his home with three young cousins when he wandered off straight into a cornfield” with the dog following behind.  The toddler wandered off about 6:15 pm just when dusk was setting in.

The helicopter hovered over the cornfield, picking up the “heat signature” of the missing boy along with that of the dog. Jerri Gertken, Mason’s grandmother said: “The dogs are very protective over the kid. She sat right next to him and she barked the whole time. It is completely, ‘dog saves boy.”

The boy went missing with his pet English Springer Spaniel named Bella Grace and the dog’s 12-week-old pup named Madeline. They wandered off the fields for more than three hours.
