Dog refuses to leave burning house because he’s protecting 4 little friends inside

Firefighters picked the dog up and saw them underneath.


This story might be one of the most unusual rescue stories ever. Besides the common belief that dogs and cats are ‘natural’ enemies, they prove us wrong all the time.

One dog named Leo did the most amazing thing in order to save the life of four baby kittens; he risked his own, and that’s the ultimate sacrifice one can make.

The dog was discovered by the firefighters who were trying to prevent the flames spread in one house in Melbourne, Australia.

When they entered the place, they took a notice of the Jack Russell mix laying on the floor unconscious. But not until they took the dog in their arms, did they realized what Leo did. The kittens were under him, which meant he placed his body over them to keep them safe.

The dog was rushed at the vet’s where he was given oxygen. He is now feeling well.
