Hero Dog Sacrifices Himself To Save His Entire Family From Fire



The Butler family was calmly asleep when their Florida home unexpectedly caught on fire. The fire alarm only beeped a couple of times before shutting down, failing to wake the family up. Lucky for them, their Jack Russell Terrier, Zippy, quickly realized the danger of the situation and started running around the house, barking to wake the family up.

The hero dog ran through the blazing inferno to wake up all of the family members who then managed to escape the fire safely. Upon getting out of the house, homeowner Leroy Butler realized that Zippy was still inside the burning house.

Recently a hero dog named Zippy saved his whole family from a house fire

He tried to go back to get Zippy but the house was already engulfed in flames and the man could do nothing but wait for the firefighters to finish putting out the fire. By the time Leroy made it inside, Zippy had already suffocated from the smoke.

“The floor in the living room was all on fire so there was nowhere for him to run out,” said Butler in an interview with Fox News. “He was a short little dog. There was nowhere for him to go.”

Firefighters say the fire started in the home’s attic and currently it isn’t clear how it started.
“Zippy was just a little Jack Russell terrier, a little black and white dog we adopted 3-4 years ago and he’s just been the house pet,” said Butler in an interview with Bay News 9. “He was real helpful and we’re going to miss him.” “He did his job, we rescued him, and I guess he returned the favor,” added the man.

Here’s how people reacted to the heartbreaking story
