Dog saves puppies from housefire
A dog saved her puppies from a house fire and incredibly placed them, one by one, in the bin of a fire engine!
The amazing scene took place in Santa Rosa de Temuco, Chile, on Thursday after a car bomb went off setting a house on fire.
A German Shepherd mix, called Amanda, was in the house with her 10-day-old puppies.
Firemen soon noticed the brave canine mom gently carrying each of her puppies out of the house in her mouth, and placing them in an open on the side of their truck.
Once she had them all in place, she curled up around them to continue protecting them from the danger.
Overwhelmed at what they'd seen, the firemen took the dogs to a vet once they'd put out the blaze.
All but one of the puppies, who had severe burns, survived.- According to Radar Online
I believe that dogs have an intuitive power about them. A few years ago I had a medical emergency and went to my friend's house to recuperate. Her German Shepard, Cocker Spaniel and two cats surrounded me the entire time I was there. The German Shepard would not leave my side.
Re: the article- I hope that someone decides to keep the mama and her babies together.

You see this a lot with Dogs, and Cats how the Mother saves the babies. So sad but such a touching story, sad one puppy died, but she saved all the others.
I can see how you said your friends dogs stayed with you while you were getting better from a medical emergency. I was about 10 when I was really sick, and was in bed for about 1 week. I was at my Aunt, and Uncle's house with my Mom, and their Dog , Rusty stayed with me the whole time. The only time he left was to go outside , and he would be right back laying either beside me on the bed or on the floor. It was like he was protecting me, it was kind of sweet. He was a great Dog, and when he passed away it was heartbreaking.

I know my cats are all very protective of one another and if there was any danger they'd help each other out.
