Puppy Saves Owner From Fire

Chihuahua warns trucker about fire – Coco wakes owner by nudging him

WHAG

Coco is used to a life on the road. The 4-month-old Chihuahua puppy loves to cruise the highways with his owner, a truck driver.

Now, Coco’s being credited with saving his owner’s life.

Early Thursday morning, Coco’s owner awoke to his dog frantically barking. The pair was sleeping in their big rig at the Myersville Truck Stop in Frederick, Md., when it caught fire, and the cab filled with smoke. Thanks to Coco’s warning, both the man and his dog were able to make it out alive. Both were rushed to the hospital, and Coco is being treated for severe smoke inhalation.

While the owner is recovering from second degree burns at Baltimore Burn Center, the dog named Coco is fighting for his life at a Hagerstown vet clinic.

Four-month-old Coco is clinging to life in this oxygen tent, hooked up to a humidifier, and IVS.

“Coco is still in critical condition and we are continuing to watch him closely,” said Dr. Saxton, of the Cumberland Valley Veternary Clinic. “He will continue to receive supportive care of oxygen and fluids until he is well enough to leave the clinic.”

Coco is being treated in an oxygen tent.

Veterinarians said his medical bills will likely top $2,000, which is a huge financial burden for his owner, who also remains hospitalized.

If you want to help defray the cost of Coco’s medical expenses, send donations to the Humane Society of Washington County offices, 13011 Maugansville Road, Hagerstown, Md.
