Mother dog rescues her puppies from burning house, places them on fire truck
There's little a mother wouldn't do to save her babies, and that includes rescuing them one-by-one from a house fire.
Photos of a dog in Chile apparently carrying all five of her 10-day-old puppies from a burning house then placing them in the back of a fire truck made the rounds on social media Saturday.
Chilean newspaper Soy Chile said the mother dog, named Amanda, and all but one of her puppies survived the blaze.
One pup, named Amparo according to the paper, died of severe burns.
All of the surviving dogs were taken to a local veterinarian to recover.
Homeowner Omar Torres was treated for burns.
The newspaper’s Facebook page got hundreds of comments from viewers touched by the photos, including one that read “very beautiful, the (way) a mother loves her babies.”
