How far would you go to save an animal in need?
Policemen and firefighters put their lives on the line every single day. It’s their job to keep all living things from harm, and that means that they often have to put themselves at risk. Whether it’s going face to face with a burglar in a convenience store to prevent a robbery with his or her own two hands, or risking inhaling too much smoke when running in and out of a burning building to make sure no one is left inside… It’s all part of the job.
When a building went up in flames in Mexico City, Mexico, both firefighters and policemen jumped into action. While firefighters worked hard to subdue the flames, one policeman noticed something cornered in the fenced area surrounding the flames. The shuddering creature was a very, very frightened shepherd, who was clearly too stunned to make it out on her own.
With no hesitation, the policeman ran almost directly at the building to come to the poor creature’s rescue. The pup wasn’t sure what to make of him at first, since everything around her was so chaotic. But in the blink of an eye, the rescuer was able to scoop her up in his arms and take her to safety. It all happens so fast, and I can’t imagine what was going through this poor pup’s mind.
Thank goodness that brave men and women like this officer are out there, saving innocent lives!
