7-year-old girl crawled under barn to rescue puppy others couldn't reach

Seven-year-old Nina Boyett from Fort Worth in Texas loves animals which is why she didn't hesitate to crawl through a very narrow crawl space to save a puppy stuck under a barn.

When Nina and her aunt discovered a pregnant dog under an old barn, they began trying to figure out how to get her out. That dog had her litter of 10 puppies, but only one survived.

First her aunt and local rescue group volunteer got the dog out, and then Nina jumped in to help rescue the puppy. She crawled under the barn and through a crawl space to rescue the tiny puppy. Nina stopped half-way out to ask: "Can we keep it?"

Nina says she would probably do it again. "I think she was excited to see me and save her," she said. The puppy, an Australian shepherd mix, was named Princess Nina. It's not known if Nina will be allowed to keep the puppy.
