BRANDON , FLORIDA (FOX 13) – Buddy the dog only has three legs, but this rescue pup is 100-percent hero.
On Tuesday he used his only front paw to wake his owner as their condo filled with smoke from a two-alarm fire.
Dominic Baccus says his three-year-old foster-turned forever fur-baby woke him up around two in the morning by pushing his paw into his chest and neck Tuesday.
Baccus soon realized why: smoke was rapidly seeping into his apartment. When he opened his back door he discovered his two-story condo buildings was on fire. The units just beneath his were already completely engulfed in flames.
Baccus had to think quickly. He grabbed his phone, wallet and a leash for Buddy, who was visibly frightened by the fire growing just outside their door.
“The flames were starting to engulf my doorway,” said Baccus. “My entire house was full of smoke and I saw it was starting to take my entire neighbor’s house down. Buddy was scared and was trying to run away back into the house so I knew I needed to get him on his leash.”
