Dolly, a 13-yr-old German Shepherd, saved her 90-year-old owner, Craig Chandler, from a house fire. This is her at a ceremony where she was being honored and received the SPCA Companion Award.

Chandler was starting to fix lunch for himself and Dolly around noon Sunday, April 12, in their home. Dolly came into the kitchen, was running around excited, but didn’t bark. Chandler knew something was wrong. There was a quick moving fire in another room, and Dolly was able to lead Chandler to escape.

Not only did Dolly save Chandler’s life, but Chandler saved Dolly’s life years ago too. “I saved her life when she was 4 months old,” Chandler said, adding that she was “the worst abused dog” when he took her in. “It took a lot of love and patience to get her squared away.”

Well, I think you could say that she got “squared away.”
