    Obviously a completely unsafe operation that safety gurus would dog him over!

    WTF?!? Dogs are supposed to hate cats...

    Maybe this is a dog with a conscience. Maybe the dog set the fire in an attempt to rid his house of kittens, then felt guilty about, so he had to go back and save the kittens?

    I guess dog arson just isn't a problem in my area.

    By sharing this video, we're only adding to the false idea that this dog is a "hero." The television station should be reminded that this was an unsafe act, and goes against everything taught at doggie obedience school.

    What I want to know is: did the owner or tenants of the home ensure that there were properly functioning smoke detectors? If not, the dog should have let them all in there to die.

    Actually, yes.

    The dog was just asked by a neighboring kennel to teach a fire safety class. The dog also holds multiple certifications.

    Absolutely! It is our responsibility to make sure this dog is not seen as a hero. If he is, other dogs may think so too and strive to be like him. We can not take that risk.

    Like being fixated on a giant, hairy, multi-colored, german speaking mole on an otherwise pretty girl's face. Kinda takes all the fun out of things.

    "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

    Nah, you have to post in them, even if it is to post that you have nothing to post.
