Dwarf saved by pet Chihuahua

A Welsh little person who lost her way in the deep forest of Snowdonia near Dolwyddelan, North Wales, earlier this week is alive because of her pet Chihuahua, medics say.

Beverley Burkitt of Colwyn Bay was on a morning walk with her long-haired Chihuahua, Pebbles, when she strayed into the woodland and got lost, The Sun reported.

The 3 foot, 8 inch mother  had to sleep in the forest when she was unable to contact her 15-year-old daughter at the trekking center where they were staying after she dropped her cell phone along the way.

When she realized she was lost, Burkitt, 45, snuggled up with Pebbles and waited. A search party of ground teams and helicopters found her unharmed the next day with the pooch.

Medics said the dog saved the 45-year-old woman from hypothermia by lying across her legs to keep her warm.
