‘Lost’ dog on New Hampshire highway leads police to owner injured in car wreck


A heroic dog found on a New Hampshire highway led police to its owner who was ejected from a pickup truck at a nearby crash site on Monday night, authorities said.

The pooch, a German Shepard named Tinsley, was thought to be lost after being spotted by witnesses on Interstate 89 in Lebanon at about 10 p.m., according to New Hampshire State Police.

When a state trooper and Lebanon police officers approached the dog, the animal darted northbound on the highway and crossed into Vermont, authorities said.
