Brave Man Rushes Past Firefighters To Save His Pet Dog From Burning House

Pet owners can relate when I say we can go to any lengths for our fur babies. For owners, they ARE their own kids, and would you give up on your kid in case of an emergency? You wouldn’t.

Jose Guzman, a man from Southern California, is winning hearts for his successful attempt of saving his dog from his burning house.

According to sources, Jose was attending a barbeque at his parent’s house with his fiancée and their three girls when was alerted of a nearby fire in his house.

He didn’t think it could be his own house since they had left for the barbeque just an hour back. Turned out, just the house beside his was caught on fire but very soon his home was engulfed in flames too.

Although Jose and his family were safe, his 2-year-old blue nose pitbull Gabanna was trapped inside the house. And Jose had to save him.

He rushed past the firefighters, paying no heed to their warnings, into his blazing house to bring back his dog.

“I wasn’t gonna let her die like that,” he explained.

Jose informed that he found Gabanna hiding inside the bathroom, curled under the toilet.

“I ran through the curtain of fire and made my way through the smoke to the back of the house, where I had her chained up,” he said. “It was hard for me to get her leash unhooked, but I managed to get her loose and we both ran out towards the driveway.”

“That dog is part of my family. She’s been with us through downs and ups and I couldn’t leave her there. I would do it again if I had to; I would do it for anybody in my family”, said Jose.

The video brought netizens into tears and they are all lauding Jose for his act.

Although Jose and Gabanna have had some injuries due to the fire, the two are now healthy and running.

That’s the kind of love owners share with their dogs. And if the dog were you, it would risk its life for you too!
