They say that a house fire can be the worst thing that could happen to a person. It may mean a loss of properties, and may even result in loss of life.
One dog’s life changed
In Blakey, Georgia, one dog’s life changed when the house it was living in caught fire. The firefighters did their best to quench the fire. While they were doing so, they were informed that inside the house was the owner and two dogs.
Unfortunately, the fire was quite huge and it took the life of the owner of the house and another pet dog. Thankfully, Ruby was only injured. They weren’t able to find Ruby during the time of the fire. They thought that Ruby lost her life in the fire as well.
Other owners of the house went back after a few days to see the situation and if there was anything that can be still used. While they were there, they saw Ruby. She had been suffering from burns and needed immediate medical attention.
They rushed her to the nearest vet to get the treatment that she needs. The vet told them that Ruby had third-degree burns seemingly all over her body. He also thought that Ruby may have tried to escape and ran through the blaze. Life is changed when these type of events happen.
Rescue group found her a home.
Ruby now didn’t have an owner. She was then taken in by a rescue group. They found her a foster mom named Karey. While she was staying there, some members of the firemen who responded to the house fire learned about Ruby’s survival story and went to meet the dog. The firemen found the dog to be adorable and decided that they were going to adopt her.
Now, Ruby lives with the firemen and is now an official member of the team. She even has a badge of her own to prove that. Ruby has been a constant source of strength and happiness and hope for the firefighters.
