20/4/2016

Last February, a young female Pit Bull survived a blazing fire in a house in Detroit, US, thanks to a team of firefighters, the BarkPost reports. When they arrived, the firefighters found the dog trapped inside alongside her human. It was clear there was no chance she was going to abandon him.

The firefighters knew the dog and her human were in a critical state: the man was already unconscious and hisPit Bull had already inhaled a dangerous amount of smoke.They grabbed the dog and carried her out to safety, but she couldn't help but look around for her human whilst the firefighters rushed to get her in an ambulance.

The veterinary clinicGroesbeck Animal Hospitaltook the Pit Bull in and after various medical checks, they confirmed her life was no longer in danger. Tragically, her human, who was known as "Shorty" didn't survive from his injuries.
