A fluffy little dog named Lexi is being called a hero for helping to rescue an 85-year-old neighbor who collapsed in his Brooklyn apartment.Linda Deutsch concedes that she thought Lexi - a white bichon frise was being naughty when she refused to get into the elevator for their walk.

Finally, though, Deutsch let Lexi lead her down the hall. That's when she heard a cry for help.

The building superintendent was summoned, and they found Charles Postler, who had been lying helplessly on the floor for hours. He was treated at a hospital.

Comments his son, Charles Postler Jr.: "People say that dogs are man's best friend and this proves it all over again."
