Tiger ended up with Tami Michalak, who found Mr Kibbey's address and phone number on Tiger's collar. She tried calling, but no one answered, so she put Tiger on a leash and headed in the direction for Tiger's home. The large dog tugged all the way, and was clearly in a hurry to get back.
According to the Toledo Blade, Mr Kibbey remembers nothing from being on the porch of his home to waking up in a hospital.
Tiger was once rescued as a puppy in the Florida Everglade's, and his own act of heroics has not gone unnoticed. He will receive a Heroic Mutt Award from PETA that includes dog treats, a toy, a framed certificate, and a special harness to make walks comfortable. Only a handful of these awards are given out in a year.
