This Dog Bit Her Owner - And It Saved His Life

When a dog bites its owner, it's sometimes for a very good reason. This was certainly the case when Patch bit his owner whilst she was lounging in the bath. Surprised by this uncharacteristic gesture, she quickly realized that something wasn't right.

Patch lives in a house with two parents and two young children. Thanks to him, the family escaped a terrible fate...

One evening, Nola, the mother of the family, decided to take a relaxing bath. She closed her eyes and let the music wash over her. But this moment of serenity wouldn't last long. Patch leapt towards his owner and gave her a firm bite on the arm. His owner, shocked at first, quickly realized that Patch was trying to tell her something. Patch was insistent so she got out of the bath and followed him.

When Nola stepped out of the bathroom she had a huge shock - the house was in flames. She followed Patch out of the house where all of the family gathered. Nola, however, wanted to go back inside to pick up some valuables but Patch put himself firmly in her way to stop her re-entering the burning house. Moments later, the house had exploded.

Nola realized that Patch had saved her life twice that night. The family had previously been considering giving Patch up because he was too much work but their minds were very much changed following Patch's heroic actions that night.
