A heroic mother dog saved her 10-day-old puppies from a house fire; board them to a fire truck
A heroic mother dog saved her 10-day-old puppies from a house fire in Santa Rosa de Temuco, Chile on Thursday. Sensing the danger to her babies, she picked the pups up in her mouth and moved them from the burning house to the safety of the nearby fire truck. She then gently placed the pups on the steps of the fire-truck as firefighters fought the blaze.
According to SoyChile, the German shepherd mix named Amanda rescued her pups alongside of firemen when the blaze broke out in her family’s home. Amanda and her pups were taken to the veterinarian, but one puppy named Amparo, who had suffered severe burns, later died. The veterinarian said that Amanda’s four other puppies were doing really well, but that Amparo had died from her injuries.
The vet, Felipe Lara, said that Amanda had defended her puppies when they tried to take them away from her to care for them. Eventually she let them check over her pups but she wanted to stay with ailing Amparo and did not want to let her from her sight.
