Most dogs would do absolutely anything for their human companions, and when one Pennsylvania woman’s house caught on fire in the middle of the night, her selfless dog did everything possible to save her life, even though it meant risking his own.
After one Philadelphia woman’s house caught on fire, her dog Che immediately began barking to warn her of the danger and wake her up. When she didn’t get up, Che lied on top of the woman to protect her from the flames and stayed there until firefighters managed to get inside and rescue them.
“Early this morning we were called by the Philadelphia Fire Department for a dog from a fire,” the Red Paw Emergency Relief Team said. “When we arrived on-scene we were told that neighbors were alerted of the fire due to the dog barking. Neighbors stated that it’s unusual for him to be barking at that time and that is what woke them. When neighbors looked out the window they saw his house on fire. They are saying that the dog saved everyone!”
“The dog stayed on her chest the whole time, which prevented her from being burned totally,” said neighbor Adele Butler. And while Che’s owner is still in critical condition, she would likely be dead if it weren’t for her dog.
The hero dog was immediately taken to receive medical treatment for smoke inhalation and is now being cared for by the owner’s friend as he awaits her recovery.
