When you think of heroes, you mainly think about humans wearing capes and having super powers. But sometimes, heroes come with fur, and walk on four legs. Just like this guy.

Firefighters had just responded to a house fire in Melbourne, Austrailia. Luckily, when they got there, the family had gotten out safely, along with one of their dogs, Barney. But there was still one problem. Their other dog Leo was still stuck inside.

They waited but there was no sign of little Leo. The family began to fear the worst as they nervously waited outside. Firefighters had rushed in, and were looking for the little dog. But they saw nothing.

After a few more minutes of searching, they finally saw something on the ground in the one room. As they got closer, they realized that it was the dog, Leo.

They quickly rushed over and picked him up. But when they looked underneath him, they were shocked by what they found.

Leo had been watching over the family’s four kittens, who had also been trapped in the house. He had been laying over top of them to keep them safe. By the time the firefighters arrived, he had been unconscious.
