The firemen were exhausted after responding to several calls that night. But the puppies were so small, they all fit in their hands. As the creatures shivered, the firefighters used a wet cloth to clean their eyes. Then, each puppy was placed in a cardboard box lined with a blanket. The black puppies cried as they crawled across the blanket, looking for each other. Then, the firefighters discovered something shocking.
Firefighters are mostly responsible for responding to fires, but they’re also trained to help in any kind of emergency. If someone’s life is at risk, you know you can count on these fearless and brave folks who are always there to protect and help. And these puppies needed nothing short of a miracle.

Newborn puppies are a beautiful sight, but they’re also extremely fragile, and the firefighters knew that.

The dangers they face constantly is difficult. But some calls are like a breath of fresh air from all the doom and gloom they see daily.
They’re Really Special
But firefighters know that in the end, all their sacrifices and efforts will finally pay off. Someone’s gotta do it, right? Someone has to run straight towards danger and save whoever’s in distress. It would be well in our nature to hear an explosion or spot a fire and run away, but these heroes are the first officials on the scene of a catastrophe. We can’t help but wonder if people truly realize that day or night, these heroes are saving lives. Human or otherwise…
