A heartwarming story unfolded in Lebanon Junction when two-year-old Charlee Campbell and her loyal pit bull, Penny, went missing for nearly two days. Charlee’s grandmother, Beth Campbell, was overjoyed when they were found safe.
Beth believes Penny acted as a hero, staying by Charlee’s side throughout her disappearance. “When my dog didn’t come home, and my baby wasn’t home, she was not going to leave that baby until she got here,” Beth said.
Wayne Brown, who found Charlee, experienced a personal connection to the situation, as his little brother had gone missing and tragically lost his life. He discovered Charlee in his backyard and quickly called for help.
The Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office conducted a thorough search, but questions linger about how Charlee and Penny managed to remain hidden until their discovery.
Despite the mystery surrounding their disappearance, Charlee’s family is grateful for her safe return. The young girl was taken to the hospital for evaluation but is doing well.
This heartwarming tale reminds us of the profound bond between children and their pets, and how these loyal companions can provide comfort and protection in times of need.
