Firefighters fight a blaze – then see dog rushing out of the house with something in its mouth

No matter what happens, all mothers will have a special connection to their children.

And we have seen countless examples of how mothers will do everything in their power to protect them.

Whether we’re talking about people, dogs, birds, or fish, we see the power of this bond across countless species.

When a family’s house recently caught fire, this powerful bond was exposed.

But it was only after the fire was extinguished that the incredible occurance was revealed.

When a fire starts, time is of essence. Firefighters must quickly be in place to tackle the fire and to make sure everyone is safe.

When a fire raged in this family house in Santa Rose de Temuco, Chile, firefighters were quickly on scene. Fortunately, the family escaped unhurt apart from some minor burns.

But as the firefighters began to head back to their fire truck, they discovered that someone else had survived the fire, someone they had not been able to find in the house.


The mother dog, Amanda, raced back and forth between the house, putting her 10 day old puppies in the safest place she could find – the firetruck!

After everyone was rescued she lay close to them, protecting them and making sure they were ok. Veterinarians were quickly called on scene to ensure that all her puppies survived unharmed.

Maternal instinct

The mamma dog obviously had incredible instinct to be able to manage to save all of her puppies from the flames. Aside from one puppy being treated for serious burns, the entire family are alive and well — all thanks to Amanda’s courage.

Clearly, nothing could stop this heroic mother from being with her beloved puppies. Not even a blazing fire.
