Dog Saves Owners and Other Pets from Upstate New York Fire

One July night in Schuyler Falls, New York, Samantha Warner watched as fire claimed the home she shared with her fiancé, Jeffrey Dashnaw. Thankfully, because of the quick actions of their five-year-old Labrador Retriever, Silver, the couple escaped with their lives – and all their pets!

According to CNHI News, Samantha and Jeffrey were both sleeping when the fire began that Saturday night. Suddenly, Jeffrey was woken up by Silver climbing on top of him! There was already smoke coming into the bedroom, so Samantha believes that “If it wasn’t for Silver, three, four more minutes, and we wouldn’t be here.”

Instead, because Silver woke them up, Samantha and Jeffrey were able to work together to save their 3 cats and 11 dogs (including Silver) safely outside. Samantha is grateful that her small son was not home that night so that they only had to worry about keeping their pets safe.

The couple and their pets are all unharmed by the fire, but Silver has a new name. According to Samantha, Silver is now “our hero, that’s for sure.”
