This Dog so Loyal Even Fire is Burning the House Down

GEORGE TOWN: Dogs are truly a man’s best friend. Ask tailor Teo Siang Boo.

Two of his dogs, Blacky and Tommy, refused to leave even when fire was about to engulf his shop in Macalister Road here.

Loyal dogs: Lim Kom Hoon cleaning her dogs who remained inside the shop during the blaze in George Town yesterday. They didn’t leave until the owner came in the morning.

“Luckily, they were not overwhelmed by the smoke. They were also not injured when I found them hiding under the toilet basin.

“Firemen and neighbours had earlier tried to coax the dogs out but they refused to leave and instead continued to guard the premises,” he said.

Teo’s shop was one of three destroyed during a fire which occurred at about 4am yesterday.

The other two were an optical shop and a grocery shop.

No casualties were reported during that incident.

It is learnt that losses were estimated at about RM500,000.

State Fire and Rescue De partment operations officer Wan Azmi Ahmad said 40 firemen in 10 fire engines rushed to the scene after receiving a call at 4.06am.

“The fire was brought under control with the assistance of volunteer firefighters after six minutes before it was extinguished at 6.06am.”

The cause of the fire has yet to be ascertained. Source: TheStar

I wish that I have this type of Dog. Because it can protected the owner and stuff when in danger. Don’t want a dog that always wait for food and wag the doggie tail. But for dog to be fully trained and loyal to us we should give the dog freedom and stuff and would be happy living with us.
