Sebastian is definitely a special hero.
This six-year-old Rottweiler saved his family, Jennifer Morris and her three children, by barking and running around the house to wake up the family. 12-year-old Beavis, a beagle, was also howling outside.
Both of the dogs were alerting the family of a fire in the kitchen and living room inside the mobile home.
Morris and her three children woke up and jumped out the window. The family got out safely, but unfortunately Sebastian did not.
The dog was found dead on the floor next to Morris’ toddler son’s crib.
“I think he went back to get the baby,” Morris said. “I don’t think he realized I had him.”
She said Sebastian went outside of the house but then immediately turned right around and went back to the baby’s room. He would not come out of his room.
Morris added: “A firefighter told me, ‘That dog must have really loved your son because he died at his bedside.’ ”
