Tiny Dog is Big Hero When Hearing-Impaired Owner's House Catches Fire
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Miller took the dog out, thinking he just needed a late-night potty break (who hasn't needed one of those from time to time?), but when she turned back to her mobile home, she saw flames coming from the windows. Miller's mother, Eudora, credits the pooch with saving her daughter's life, adding that although they don't know Spaz' age, he's "cute as can be."
On a side note, trained hearing dogs really do some amazing things. Deana Welch-Dale, a teaching consultant for the deaf and hard of hearing, has seen dogs that alert to their owners name in busy and loud environments. Additionally, they can pay for items at the grocery store, grab a drink from the fridge, even call 911 in the event of an emergency!
