This two-year-old was rescued and protected by a family labrador after getting lost in the woods near his home.

It’s a story you’d expect to see in the movies, not one that actually happens in real life. Two-year-old Tyler Jacobson wandered out the back door of his South Carolina home on April 1 and ended up getting lost in the woods behind his neighbor’s house for more than 12 hours! And you won’t believe what happened next.

Baby Tyler was wearing nothing more than a diaper when the temperatures dropped below 40 degrees. But he managed to stay alive in these freezing conditions — with the help of man’s best friend!

An unnamed family dog kept the toddler warm and stayed by his side for the entire ordeal, proving to be a faithful companion through the night.

Local police launched a huge search and rescue for the little guy, but then called it off in the early morning hours of April 2. And it wasn’t until the family labrador started barking non-stop that the baby was discovered.

Neighbors say the dog’s loud barking was a red flag that something was wrong. And it proved to be a life-saving holler — bringing police right to the scene of the incident! The baby was rescued and returned to his mom, Jacklyn Jacobson, and her boyfriend Jose Gloria.

It looks like man’s best friend turned out to be a baby-saving miracle!
