We call our dogs many things. Friends, family, fur babies, and so on. But it seems all too often people seem to forget to refer to them as our heroes, too. We write stories here every day about dogs who save their owner’s lives. We know just how much a dog can be heroic, and we have story where the dog is a hero in every sense of the word. Also, hey press, please notice this is a Pit Bull that saved this boy’s life. These dogs deserve some good press.
So young Nick Lamb was home alone, sleeping, when his house caught fire. On top of this, the boy was also born deaf, so any alarms that were going off were not being heard. Thankfully, Ace his Pit Bull, jumped up on to his bed and began furiously licking his face until he woke up. At first he thought it was just Ace wanting to go outside, but then Nick started smelling the smoke and realized that Acre the dog really is a hero who woke him up to get him out of the house so that he wouldn’t burn alive. His mother admits she doesn’t think her son would be alive were it not for Ace. That is definitely fair to say.
Seems the press only wants to talk about Pit Bulls when something bad happens. So make sure you share this article and spread the word about this dog and how heroic and loyal it was.
