They call dogs "man's best friend".  This dog from the Atlanta area certainly proved that as he saved his owner from a fire that was taking over their house.

As flames began to engulf their house, Scott Dunn's 3 1/2 year old boxer began to bark in order to wake him up.  Dunn says that he tried to pick the dog up and escape with him but that 'Duncan' planted his feet and he couldn't get out with him.
