Mya — Shelter

Location: Swannanoa, North Carolina

Mya save me and my grandfather from a house fire by waking me up because the smoke alarm couldn’t. She was scared and was scratching on my door to get in, while the smoke alarm just sounded like something got stuck in my fan. I woke up to her scratching on my door, and when I opened up to let her in, our living room was glowing orange from a small fire. My grandfather was in the room closest to the fire so I woke him up and grabbed her leash as fast as I could. Called 911 and they told me to get everyone out of the house. My grandfather was still getting dressed so me and Mya evacuated and waited for the fire department to come. My grandfather got to live 5+ years because of our hero.
