WATCH: Razor the dachshund saves Jazzy the St. Bernard from ditch in New Mexico

When Jazzy, a nine-year-old St. Bernard went missing for hours last month, owner Tim Chavez of Belen, New Mexico had no idea where to look.

Thankfully, Jazzy’s best friend Razor the dachshund knew Jazzy was in trouble and tried to get Chavez’s attention.

When he couldn’t he ran to the ditch where Jazzy was stuck. As luck would have it, a bystander noticed Razor and followed him to find Jazzy stuck in a muddy ditch.
