he is real life saver

Snow is left here and there.
I found an article on the news paper that made me relieved so much.
A car was found overturned on the riverside in Urausu Town from which an 81-year-old driver and his 3-year-old granddaughter were rescued.
They had been holding each other together with their companion dog Labrador Retriever named “Junior” that had kept them warmed up while they had been caught in the car after the accident.
They had endured below-zero cold from the night of November 15th to the morning of 16th. The municipality of Naie-Town where the grandfather lived in decided to make honorable recognition of the dog.
I think the old man and his grand-daughter felt secure with the dog above all at the night when the winter showed the cold tusk for the first time in this season.
