Dog Dies Saving Owner From FirePublished November 3, 2011
According to an ABC report, a Georgia man was saved by his dog when a fire broke out in his home. Sadly, the dog, who is being proclaimed a hero, died in the act of saving his owner.
Scott Dunn of Marietta, Georgia, credits his deceased Boxer, Duncan, with saving his life.
Dunn states that he was woken in the middle of the night by his dog, who was incessantly pawing at him. Initially, he ignored the warnings, thinking that Duncan just wanted to go out. When he finally awoke, however, he found his house filled with smoke.
Instantly, he grabbed Duncan by the collar and tried to get outside. When he made it to his front door, more flames seemingly exploded throughout the house.
"The minute I opened the door, it was like the house exploded," Dunn said.
In the confusion, Dunn lost Duncan, and only realized once he made it out of the house. Firefighters later found Duncan curled up in Dunn's bed, the place Dunn said Duncan would go when he was scared.
In a tone that all animal lovers can appreciate, Dunn seems truly heart broken about the loss of his friend, asking compassionate animal lovers to pray for Duncan.
Dunn is certain that he wouldn't be living if it weren't for Duncan's efforts.
