Folsom, Louisiana — When Abigail and Cecilia Borg went missing in the woods behind their home in late November, their parents were distraught. Now, the Borg family dog, Artemis, is being made a hero.

“I just start running around the whole property – six acres – and when I call [my husband] And said, ‘They’re gone,'” Mary Borg said.

The 7- and 4-year-old girls had wandered over a mile. When they are exhausted, Artemis lets Abigail Borg lie on top of her.

Police and neighbors searched for the girls for four hours, until someone heard Artemis barking.

Mary Borg said that when the search party came closer, Artemis, “was not letting them go by the girls.”

“He was circling them, howling to protect people,” she said.

It was only after the girls were reunited with their parents that they learned that Artemis was actually the one who lost them.

“He kept running ahead of us. We We were trying to follow him, but we couldn’t keep up,” said Abigail Borg.

The family has forgiven him.

“He’s got a free pass for a while,” Justin Borg said. “I won’t fuss over him for chewing on blankets and shoes.”
