Dogs are our best companions in life. No matter what happens, these devoted, loyal, brave, and affectionate creatures will never leave us alone and are willing to risk their lives for us.
A pregnant dog in Russia is being hailed a true hero after running into a private hospice to raise the alarm for the fire in the building. The hero dog named Matilda helped save four elderly patients from the blaze but suffered severe burns during the incident.
After spotting the raging fire, Matilda barked loudly to alert the four residents, who were safely pulled in the nick of time from the blaze by firefighters. But sadly, Matilda wasn’t rescued until afterwards.
The firefighters forgot about Matilda, who was left behind inside the burning and tied up on a leash. The dog was later saved by volunteers Elena Kalinina and Alexander Tsinkevich and suffered severe injuries. She cried and trembled in pain, but heroically endured everything.
“During the hustle and bustle, everyone forgot about the dog named Matilda, who was on a leash. Motya, as she is affectionately called, could not escape the fire, she was badly burned,” reported Russian media outlet SPB.
They took Matilda to Sotnikov’s clinic and shelter, where she was treated and checked by a fertility specialist. The specialist cared for her and her puppies for a very long time.
A statement from the shelter said, “Matilda’s face, neck and abdomen were severely burned. Her muzzle remained completely naked, only burnt skin is visible. Her abdomen, in which the kids are, also looks creepy.”
Matilda who is also known as Motya – is now recovering from severe burns. Thankfully, all of her puppies are all alive and developing well.
Matilda, you are incredibly courageous and caring! You are truly a hero!
