Dog Dies After Saving Owner

Dog Dies After Saving Owner, A Georgia man says he was saved from a fire in your home with your dog, Duncan, who later perished in the flames.

Still hoarse from smoke inhalation, Scott Dunn of Marietta, Georgia, says he is heartbroken after losing her beloved pet, two and a half years. “He was the kindest, more than a wonderful dog,” said Dunn. “Every time I saw it was as if I had not seen in years.”

Dunn was asleep on Monday night when he woke up at three in the morning to find smoke “down” at home.

Duncan was a boxer three years old, who woke up on time. “He was just kicking me. I was trying to leave,” says Dunn.

Dunn says he grabbed the keys and Duncan’s neck as he tried to leave home to get to your car. “At the moment I opened the door, was like the house exploded,” said Dunn. “The fire went from one end of the house to another.”

In the confusion Dunn did not realize that Duncan had failed to leave the house.

“I realized that only his neck in my hand,” said Dunn. While Dunn tried to return to the house to rescue Duncan, a warm fire him out.

“After [the fire] that firefighters found him curled up on my bed,” said Dunn. “That’s where I was when I was scared.”

Dunn is convinced that the fire would not have survived without Duncan. “I would not be here talking to you if it were not for him,” Dunn said, his voice cracking.

With your house uninhabitable and cause of the fire remains under investigation, Dunn has been living with a neighbor.

The loss of Dunn and the emotional reaction has come to other animal lovers. Since news of the fire, the Cobb County Fire Department has received several calls and emails from people asking how they can help Dunn.

Denelle Boyd, public information officer, said he received a call from a woman with five dogs to ask if she could donate clothing. “[She] said that bothered him throughout the day,” said Boyd. “Almost everyone is an animal lover has compassion for him.”

Dunn is grateful for the outpouring of support and hope that means people will remember your beloved pet. “I just want people to pray for Duncan,” said Dunn. “He was my world.”
