Dog Carries Puppies Out Of Burning House, Brings Them To Fire Truck (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

When photos of a dog carrying her 10-day-old puppies to safety surfaced on Reddit Friday, the images elicited warm-and-fuzzy reactions from several users on the site.


A house fire in Temuco, Chile, destroyed the portion of the home where the pups lived, local news agency Soy Temuco reports.

Although the puppies were safely delivered to a fire truck by their mother, homeowner Omar Torres was transported to a local hospital for burn treatments.

Unfortunately, a separate article by the paper reports one of the puppies, named Amparo, died Thursday night due to te severe burns. The rest of the puppies are in stable condition.

Of course, mother dogs have good instincts when it comes to saving their young.

A recent video from ABC News shows a golden retriever jumping in to a pool to save her struggling pup. But when the little one can't pull itself to the surface, the mother climbs out of the pool and brings it to safety.
