Without fear and without hesitation, Molly would stop at nothing until the job was done.
"Molly's been a superstar since she was a puppy," Molly's owner Allen Brown says.
Molly is a ten year old, chocolate lab with more spunk than most. As a search and rescue dog, her training was put to the test on May 22nd.
"Despite everything, we were walking across and the debris, Molly just kept going," Molly's Owner Alicia Brown says.
Her owners Allen and Alicia Brown say Molly knew this tornado disaster was different.
It was though she could sense it was her home.
"She has better work ethic than most human beings do and she just worked and worked and worked all through the night," Allen Brown says.
"Eight days straight she didn't stop until she knew everyone was accounted for," Alicia Brown says.
On this mission, Molly only found victim's who didn't survive the storm.
"It's still someone's loved one that needs to be brought home to them," Alicia Brown says.
As the dust settled, the Brown's realized the irony in Molly helping her hometown of Joplin.
Just three years ago Molly needed a pacemaker to survive.
"She had a third degree heartblock and it was life threatening," Alicia Brown says.
The Joplin community came together to pay for the procedure that saved her live on May 22nd 2008 and three years later this lab was given the chance to give back.
"The people of Joplin were her hero and all I can do is thank everybody for coming together as a community three years ago and coming together 3 years later," Alicia Brown says.
Hours of hard work went into Molly being able to work almost eight days straight after the tornado hit.
That night, and the days following, Molly did her best to provide comfort to a number of Joplin families who lost a love one and to a city that saved her life just three years ago.
