Firefighters were amazed during a recent early-morning response to a house fire. A mother dog risked her life to save her puppies from the fire engulfing her house. The mother dog, Amanda, raced back and forth between the house, putting her 10-day-old puppies in the safest place she could find – a fire truck!
As an onlooker photographed it with his cell phone, she had already placed a few of her puppies in one of the truck’s equipment compartments. She didn’t stop racing back into the smoke and fire until all of her babies were safely away from the fire.
The firemen on the scene could not believe their eyes. Most people have never seen a dog this smart or this brave! Bringing each one out at once, she took six trips into the fire and no one could stop her. Here are more photos captured as the dog saves her puppies:
All the firemen could do was to spray water on her each time to keep her from singeing. You can see some of the singed hair on her back end, forehead and lower legs. After rescuing all of her pups from the blaze, Amanda sat down next to them to nurse, protecting them with her body. Onlookers called an emergency veterinary service, and she and her pups were rushed to the hospital. Aside from one puppy being treated for serious burns, the entire family is alive and well thanks to the bravery of Amanda. What a heroic mother! How great!
