The smart and heroic dog buried her puppies to protect them from the flames, then she ran away and took cover as well. All ten dogs were found alive and well and they have been rescued by a local animal rescue.

As firefighters fought the flames, local residents informed them they had seen a mother dog moving her week-old-puppies and possibly burying them to protect them from the fire. The rescue men took off in search of the dogs and soon found a hole dug near a large metal storage container. Inside the hole were nine healthy puppies awaiting rescue.

Immediately, the firemen started to dig out puppies and transport them to safer place. They searched for the mom, too, and found her taking cover inside a burned down home not too far away from her puppies.
