RESCUE RIDGE ALUMNUS SAVES HIS FAMILY!
posted: Feb. 12, 2019.
Here is the story about Jake saving his family, told by his family: I wanted to tell you about what Jake, our 7 year old black lab rescue dog from Rescue Ridge, did recently. We woke up in the morning and Jake ran into our room as he always does. This time though he was very agitated, shaking, and unwilling to lie down or be petted. I figured he needed to go outside really bad and we let him out. Then he refused to come back in the house and actually kept walking away from the house when I approached him to lead him back inside. I became suspicious and started looking around the house for what may be bothering him. I found that the exhaust pipe from on top of our gas fired water heater had become dislodged and the fumes were going directly into our house. Being odorless and colorless we would not have known to look for this without Jake's actions. I replaced the pipe quickly and opened windows after calling the fire department. We all waited outside until things were deemed to be clear. Had this gone undetected we may not be here to tell this story today. Jake, the dog we rescued had rescued us! I thought you would like to hear this amazing story.
