When mail carrier Melinda Thompson encountered a burning shed which housed puppies, she didn’t hesitate to take action. Melinda quickly found a shovel and broke the latches off the shed door.
“The shed was on fire, and I know that they have puppies,” she said. “I had to get them out.” Inside, Melinda found one lone pup crying for help by the door, while the rest of the dogs avoided the flame by huddling in a corner.
The dog owners were so grateful that they allowed Melinda to adopt one of the dogs. She knew exactly which dog she would choose, the pup that braved the fire to stand by the door and cry for help. Melinda named her Ember.
