A heroic dog came to the rescue of a badly injured pensioner in her back garden.

The older woman praised Fergus, 12, and his owner, Trish McGregor.
She told the Daily check-in her dog was in the back garden until about nine o’clock that evening.
She said, “He came home and kept going in and out, barking all the time. That’s exactly what he does when my neighbor is over there.
“But I knew she wouldn’t be out for a conversation by then. He wouldn’t shut up and I told her not to be a fool. But he just didn’t stop,” said- it.
Trish, 80, went to investigate and found her friend seriously injured.
âShe had broken her arm and had been cut in the face. It was very cold that night.
