After running into a Russian hospice to raise the alarm for fire in the building, a hero dog saved the lives of four residents but suffered severe burns.
There is a reason why dogs are our best companions in life. These incredibly devoted, loyal, brave, and affectionate creatures have proved their readiness to risk their lives for us a million times before.
Recently, one amazing dog saved the lives of four people at a Russian hospice, after running inside the building to raise the alarm about the fire.
Matilda, the dog, was pregnant and is now recovering from severe burns after she passed out due to carbon monoxide fumes during the fire in the region of Leningrad.
After the fire service was called, they saved all four residents of the private hospice. However, mongrel Matilda was saved later by volunteers Elena Kalinina and Alexander Tsinkevich, and the poor dog suffered grievous injuries.
It was reported that she ‘cried and trembled in pain, but heroically endured everything’.

Animal campaigners at Vasilek shelter in St Petersburg are now struggling to save Matilda after the severe burns.
“Matilda’s face, neck, and abdomen were severely burned. She was checked by a fertility specialist who looked at her for a very long time and carefully studied the puppies. They are all alive and developing well.
Now it is impossible to understand the number of babies she is carrying, since she is a big dog.”

Unfortunately, her nipples are badly injured, and Matilda -- known as Motya -- will not be able to feed her puppies.
It was also reported that due to her injuries, the hospice owner will not be able to take care of her anymore. Matilda, you are one incredibly courageous and caring being!
You are truly a hero!
