Molly the Lifesaver



Meet Molly, the 8-year-old Labrador who saved her family from a fire in their Montgomery County home! Alerting them to call the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Squad just in time, Molly proved that sometimes heroes have four legs and a tail. She's not just a pet; she's a lifesaver.


This is a Montgomery County, Maryland announcement.

Hi Roy... I've heard so many stories about both dogs and cats being lifesavers in various situations such as fire and medical. I do hope Molly got lots of treats afterwards.

Hi Roy- what an uplifting story.  Dogs and cats have senses we don't appreciate. Thank goodness she used her paws to alert the mom.

That's a beautiful dog.  She looks very much like the Lab my daughter and family had for many years.

Roy, I have read numerous accounts of dogs serving as saviors in different fire scenarios. Molly definitely deserves additional hugs and goodies for being a hero to her family!
