Your dog may be able to do some cool tricks, but could it save your life? Dash, a 2-year-old border collie-Australian shepherd mix (that's not him in the photo), did just that for his 11- and 15-year-old owners.
Last week in Liberty, Indiana, the spotted dog began growling and barking at approximately 3 a.m, waking up the brothers' parents. The couple quickly realized their house was filled with smoke and rushed to wake up their sons.
The family had two smoke detectors in their house, but both failed to work. That's when Dash came to the rescue.
Authorities said the fire started in the garage and spread to the back of the house.
Talk about man's best friend!
