Champ the dog has always been a nice guy, without a doubt, but in light of recent events, he now easily rates among the very best.
On Thursday, early in the morning, a fire started in the basement of a home in Ontario, Canada. Tragically, none of the householders were awake at the time and were ignorant of the threat.
Fortunately for them, Champ was one of those inside who paid attention.
The courageous dog sprung into action as the house began to smoke and the flames started to spread, ensuring that his family’s sleeping members would awaken in time to flee.
The day is saved by Champ. In a post, the Ontario Provincial Police wrote. What a nice boy, he informed his owners, and everyone got to safety.
Firefighters responded later and were successful in putting out the fire. But the adoration for Champ didn’t stop there.
The unsung hero of that morning has now received a deluge of online “good boys” from total strangers—well-deserved praise from a devoted audience.
“What an excellent boy! Way to go, Champ!” Someone left a comment.
Another person chimed in, “Champ, you are awesome.”
And it’s accurate.
Authorities are utilizing the incident to raise awareness of fire safety while the cause of the fire is still being investigated. They emphasize how the absence of the heroic dog may have tragically changed the outcome.
Everyone does not own a Champ. The Huntsville/Lake of Bays Fire Department stated that smoke alarms are a crucial component of a house fire escape strategy. Smoke spreads quickly when there is a fire. Working smoke alarms will alert you in time for you to immediately exit. The smoke [and] carbon monoxide alarms should be checked right away.
