Little dog saves 4 tiny kittens from fire

The Jack Russell is a small dog — a type of terrier that ranges in size from 1o to 15 inches long.

Leo is a Jack Russell mix who lives with his human (a woman with four children) and animal (another dog, Barney, and four newborn kittens) family in Melbourne, Australia.

Leo may be small but he has the heart of a lion.

One night, Leo’s house caught fire. Soon, flames filled the whole house.

Leo’s human family and Barney managed to get out, but Leo refused to flee.

When the firefighters got into the building, they found little Leo lying unconscious on the ground.

When they picked him up, they noticed that four tiny and alive kittens were underneath him. Leo was keeping the kittens safe by using his body to shield them from the fire.

Fortunately, the firefighters were able to revive Leo with oxygen.

God’s creatures like little Leo are extraordinary in their courage and sacrificial love. They put us humans to shame.

Murdered Rhodesian farmer Terry Ford’s dog, was a Jack Russell, who refused to leave his side, even after he was murdered by the Liberals beloved racist terrorists of war criminal despot Lord Robert Mugabe’s Democrat thugs. This is a true story that a movie should be made about, but of course our enemies who currently control much of the MSM, would never, ever do a movie about this,, that could awaken more people to their Kalergi Plans to destroy Western Civilization. ‘In the continuing political terror of Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwe, who can ever forget the14-year-old Jack Russell terrier Squeak?

Our domesticated animals are so precious and lovable. The world would be a much better place if humans emulated this Jack Russell.

Well, there it is, big old tough me couldn’t get through this without tearing up! The largest pet store in Vancouver, BC in the 70s & 80s was The Animal Kingdom. Their logo was “For the only love that money can buy” and it may still be there.

What a wonderful little dog. So glad the fire fighters could resuscitate him. He was so cute when reunited with the kittens.

But, Finally, I told my husband that he should look under the hood for small animals…snakes, rats, anything…..and lo and behold, there were 2 tiny kittens who’d jammed themselves up into the motor/mounts/etc…..As usual, our mother Lab raised them.
