There is no denying that there is an unbreakable bond between dogs and humans, We just love them and they just love us.

But Hank took that bond to another level and saved his family from a house fire. How did he do that might you ask?

He just would not shut up as his owner was watching a movie, while his wife and kids slept hank would not stop barking.

He made such a commotion so much of a commotion that it woke the house and his owner went on to investigate.

Explaining on Twitter, he wrote: “I want to tell you a story about Hank, and I want you to know that it has a happy ending. This is Hank 6 years ago.

“My wife got a reminder yesterday that 6 years ago Hank ate her brand new slip on Vans. Look at that guilty pup. Come on, Hank.

“Within a few hours of that reminder, at midnight last night, Hank started barking from the living room. My wife and kids were asleep, I was finishing up a movie in another room. Hank would not shut up.”

“The very large wooden work shed full of gasoline, paint and God knows what else was blazing. The oaks were on fire. Flaming leaves and embers were blowing everywhere.

“We got everyone up, 911 on the line, the whole family and both dogs out front in what felt like a few seconds. The fence and the neighbor’s shed went up like a torch. We were able to wake her up and get her kids and dog outside just as the fire crew got there.

“The fire spread to the back of our house the same minute the firefighters got the hoses to it. A minute or two more, and it was gone. Instead, everyone is safe, and we still have a house. It’s black and crispy on one side, but it’s totally intact.”

What an incredible story about how Hank saved his family and such a great opportunity to remind everyone to check their smoke alarms.

You may not have your own Hank but you should have your own smoke alarm that is checked once a week.
