Dogs definitely deserve a lot more appreciation and love for what they do for us. They not only spread love but are also ready to give their lives to protect their dear ones. Another such dog who was awarded for his heroic act was Charlie.
In the early hours of April 28, Chad McCollum and his wife were stirred from their sleep by the incessant barking of their loyal companion, Charlie. Recognizing that something might be amiss, Chad contemplated taking Charlie outside, assuming the dog needed to attend to nature's call. However, much to his surprise, Charlie's urgency did not subside but rather intensified, leaving Chad and his wife puzzled and concerned. McCollum said, "I was afraid he was going to wake the neighbors. I was a little frustrated."
Despite being called, Charlie persisted in remaining outside and incessantly barked, fixating his gaze on a particular corner of the yard. "I walk over to the corner of the yard where he's barking and I see the plume of smoke up in the sky and kind of an orange glow," McCollum told PEOPLE.
He quickly escorted Charlie inside the house, put on his shoes, and reached the place where the smoke was coming from. An RV was on fire and it was spreading to the adjacent houses. McCollum immediately called 911 and then knocked on the front doors of both houses, shouting for the residents to wake up. "I was running back and forth, just trying to bang on the doors. It’s starting to be a pretty big fire at this point," he recalled.
