Heroic mother dog saves her puppies from blazing house fire

A mother's love knows no fear or boundaries. This is true with humans as well as all the animal species on Earth. A mother will put her own life in jeopardy in order to protect or save her own offspring from danger. Woe to any intruder who tries to come between a mother and her baby.

On Thursday of this week a very heroic mother dog saved her 10-day-old puppies from a house fire in Santa Rosa de Temuco, Chile. Amanda, a shepherd mix, rescued her pups alongside of the firemen when the blaze broke out in her family's home. Sensing that her babies were in great danger, she picked the pups up in her mouth and moved them from the burning house to the safety of the nearby fire truck. Then she then gently placed each pup on the steps of the fire-truck as firefighters fought the blaze.

According to SoyChile, Amanda and her pups were then taken to the veterinarian. All survived except for one puppy named Amparo, who had suffered severe burns who later died. The veterinarian said that Amanda's four other puppies were doing really well, but that Amparo had sadly died from his injuries from the fire.

The veterinarian, Felipe Lara, reported that Amanda had initially defended her puppies when they tried to take them away from her to care for them. But eventually she let them check over her pups. However she wanted to stay with the ailing Amparo and did not want to let him from her sight.

She sensed that he was critical and did not want to leave him. Thanks to this amazing dog, all but one of her puppies were saved. There is a high possibility that they all might have perished if she had not been there to carry them away from the grave danger of the fire.

    So happy to see good news and positive energy being written about. Amanda looks exactly like my childhood shepard mix Laddie. He was a wonderful dog as well. So happy she is with her babies. Maybe little Amparo will be guardian angel to his surviving siblings.

    I often think that animals have MORE emotions and loyalty than a lot of people.
    Those who call them dumb animals are the ones who are dumb animals.
    So sad about wee Amparo. There must be a doggie heaven whether there is one for people or not.
    My darling little Chihuahua/Terrier Lily has become such a vital part of my life. I've always been sweet on animals, but rather than lessen as I grow older, it only increases. You can see soul in their eyes, you know their ornery/I didn't do it looks and so much more. Yes, Lily and I wish long and happy lives to these wonderful survivors !
