The dog owner was shocked to see his dog running into the burning house and did not think he would see his dog again. But he returned with the kitten carefully cradled in his mouth.
The common assumption when it comes to the relationship between cats and dogs is that they are opposites and hate each other. While it may be true in many cases, there is always an exception to the rule. Dogs and cats can be socialized to be friends with each other and the natural antagonism between the two can be resolved. So much so that they would have each other's back in grave situations. This was especially noted when there was a blazing fire and one family dog risked his life to dash back into the fire to save a little kitten that was stuck in the house.
This heartwarming story took place in the Ukrainian town of Donetsk. There was a massive explosion that occurred at a prominent defense company. The explosion was not only felt in the surrounding residential area but as far as 20 kilometers away. The fire also soon engulfed the houses. According to Euromaidan Press, the cause of the explosion remains a mystery but the damage was done. There were many injured people and several people died in the catastrophic explosion that was followed by a ravaging fire. Thick smoke filled the sky and everyone from the area had to evacuate.
During the evacuation, people made sure to get their loved ones, including their spouses, children, and the elderly to safety. The pets belonging to these people were also brought out of the burning houses and enclosed in cars to keep them safe. Among them was a thoughtful and brave dog. When the dog noticed that his home was engulfed in flames and his humans were running away from it, he turned back and ran into the house. His owner was shocked to see his dog running into the burning house. He was heartbroken because he did not think he would see his dog again. He was also confused about his dog's actions.
Before the owner could lose all hope, his dog made his way out of the house, through the flames and smoke. According to IHeartDogs, the brave dog trotted back to his owner in no time. To the owner's surprise, his dog had run back home to save the kitten who was left behind in the panic. The dog brought back the kitten carefully cradled in his mouth. The man stated that the dog and kitten were best of friends and spent their days playing and sleeping together. The dog had risked his life to do what most humans would not be able to do themselves. The dog was hailed a hero and the others around the dog were stunned by the selfless act of the dog.

Dog Risks Life In House Fire To Save A Friend https://t.co/22xF8AVioK
Dogs are able to sense danger and realize there is a life at stake. This is not the first time a dog has bravely rushed into a fire to save a cat. A dog in Sydney, Australia did the same thing and saved four newborn kittens from a house fire, reported Reuters. “Leo wouldn’t leave the kittens and it nearly cost him his life,” fire service Commander Ken Brown told reporters. Leo had stuck by the kittens and refused to leave. They were all saved by the firefighters. Leo had to be revived but the five of them made it through the horrible ordeal.
