True hero: Blind, deaf, 3-legged dog can still smell danger

Blind, deaf, 3-legged dog saves family from fire | – Oklahoma City News & Weather from KFOR Television, Oklahoma’s News Channel 4.

Katie and Jace woke up to a wailing Dachshund.

A genuine miracle, she believes, considering “True,” their pet dog is blind, deaf and only has three legs.

“I thought he had to go outside,” she said. “When I opened the door, it was a wall of flames.”

An electrical short ignited a fireball on the front porch, barricading Katie and Jace inside.

The fire victims lost everything, including all the baby supplies they had just collected.

True hero

A sad story that this young woman and her infant son lost everything in the fire except for their lives, their hero dog and their hope that everything will be OK. It was not a miracle, though. Even though the dog can’t see or hear, he certainly could smell that something was very wrong and alerted his family. Of course, smoke detectors would also do the same. But there is much to be said for the family pet who does he job well. I sure hope this story brings attention to Katie and her plight and people help her get back on her feet.

    It makes for a nice story, and I’m glad the family survived, but it’s certainly possible that the dog just had to pee and wanted to go outside.
