Recently, a fire tore through the Massachusetts home of a mother and her young boys after embers from a wood burning stove ignited their back deck. But a tiny Yorkie/Beagle mix named Tucker saved the day by alerting the family to the blaze. Who's a good dog? You are, Tucker!

According to mom India Gray, Tucker was barking incessantly one night. After investigating, she discovered the back of her home was engulfed in flames. Fortunately, Tucker's barking gave the family enough time to escape and call for help. And because of Tucker's vigilance, the house was saved as well.
