A mother dog named Blacky is being hailed as a hero for protecting her newborn puppies from a forest fire in Chile last weekend. With the fire encroaching, the mom dug a hole and used a metal container to create a makeshift shelter for her family. Firefighters trying to extinguish the blaze saw Blacky in action and went searching for the puppies after they had the flames under control. They found all nine of her puppies safe from harm. Several local residents have said they were interested in adopting Blacky and her puppies. — Read it at People Pets
