A dog in Tennessee is being labeled a hero after he warned of a house fire on the 4th of July.
Roux, a 3-year-old Belgian Malinois, woke up his owner Jeff LeCates with strange barks on Saturday night and as LeCates got up to investigate he found that his neighbor’s house was on fire.
Roux had darted out the door toward the neighbor’s house as LeCate followed. He banged on the door to wake the family of three.
The homeowners escaped without injury. The woman who was in the ignited home is Roux’s groomer; she had helped LeCates with adopting him over a year earlier after he lost his German Shepard.
