Teresa Santos, a volunteer with DFW Pug Rescue, was at work when she received a call that her Euless apartment was burning. Her first thought and greatest fear was for the safety of her three pugs and two cats who were inside that apartment on the other side of town.
When Teresa arrived on the scene, she found her pets safely in the care of Officer Patrick Bush. Patrick's first action when Teresa's neighbors told him her pugs were trapped inside was to race to her apartment and take her door down to save them. Officer Bush said when he entered the smoky apartment, he saw all three of her pug's harnesses hanging by the door. When he grabbed them, Pudge, Shadow and Killer, Teresa's pugs, all lined up in front of him, ready for their "daily walk" and a stroll to safety under his care and guidance.
But the story doesn't end there - after she was reunited with her pets, Teresa had time to thank Patrick and learned that he is a pug rescuer, too, and had already adopted a rescue pug from DFW Pug Rescue before the fire.
Thanks to Patrick's quick thinking, Teresa's little ones are all safe and sound today. We appreciate you so much Patrick!
