Heroic Mother Dog Saves Puppies from Fire (Photo)

When a house fire in Temuco, Chile destroyed part of their home, this mother dog did not hesitate to help her 10-day-old puppies. Not only did she rescue them from the burning building, but she carried them all the way to the safety of a nearby fire truck.

Sadly, one of her puppies, named Amparo, died from severe burns following the fire. Still, the momma herself and all of the other puppies are in stable condition, and recovering. At the time these photos were posted, the dogs’ human companion was still in the hospital for burn treatment, but he should be home soon to give them lots of extra love.

AMAZING ! Animals feel empathy more than we do as human beings, it's remarkable how they're gifted for love. Great story.
