Pebbles the Chihuahua and her owner may be small in stature, but both have a big spirit. Beverly Burkitt went out for a one hour walk in the woods on a mountain range in Wales. She had her dog Pebbles and phone with her, but somewhere along the way dropped her phone.

Beverly is not quite 4 feet tall, she has dwarfism, and she also has asthma. Things got scary when she lost her way and was stranded overnight in very cold temperatures. In order to avoid hypothermia she used Pebbles as a blanket, because of her small size he fit perfectly over her legs.

Medics finally found Beverley and Pebbles and escorted her to safety, and health checks, before she returned home to Colwyn Bay.

Beverley, 45, said: “Pebbles lay across my legs overnight and kept me warm.

“I was wearing a coat but it wasn’t as warm as Pebbles.

Thanks to Pebbles she survived the night without any complications. It just goes to show, size doesn’t matter when it comes to heroes. Nice job Pebbles, hope you got a big treat.
