Willow, a Great Pyrenees puppy saved her human family from a horrible disaster and became their hero! The 10-month-old puppy identified the source of a fire behind a hidden socket just in time.
Willow’s owner, Caitlyn posted about her dog’s heroic act on the Dogspotting Society group on Facebook. She wrote, “My dog just saved us from an inevitable fire. She sniffed out a burning outlet that is in a place that we wouldn’t have seen until it was too late. Willow alerted us to the problem and we called the Fire Department. There was a fire in the electrical box that if we hadn’t caught would have spread to the rest of the wall over night or while we were sleeping. I can’t tell you how proud I am of her.”
Furthermore, in an interview with The Koala, Caitlyn said, “She found the fire in an electrical outlet under a desk in the office. She never goes into the office. She went under the desk next to the outlet and wouldn’t come out. Willow started barking which isn’t normal for her unless she is taking to us.”
When they tried to pull the puppy out of the area, she became very defensive. This proved that something was indeed very wrong and that was when they noticed that the walls around the outlet were hot.
The family was quick to call the fire department. The authorities stated that if Willow had not located the fire in time then the entire house would have burned down. Thankfully, no one was hurt and no damage occurred, except for a few melted wires.
Caitlyn and her family adopted Willow in April and she is now 10 months old. The adorable puppy loves following her owners around the house and her favorite thing is eating. She can be a little shy at first but is also very protective of her family.
Thanks to Willow, her human family can sleep easily at night. What a brave and heroic act by an adorable doggo!
