'Wonder dog' saves couple from fire

Tank, the puppy, has been hailed a life-saver after alerting his sleeping owners to a devastating fire engulfing their Hobart home.

Jasmine Gillie, 22, and her boyfriend Josh Saunders, 20, were asleep inside their rented weatherboard home in Mornington early this morning when the large four-month-old terrier cross Tank began jumping on their bed and barking.

The couple said a fire which had started in a clothes dryer had spread quickly through the house and filled their room with smoke. Hey? didn't they know to stop drying their clothes? or was this an electrical fault?

They ran naked, but uninjured, from the house just minutes before it was engulfed in flames, they said.

"If Tank hadn't have been there we would not have woken up -- he saved our lives," Mr Saunders said. MORE>>

Apparently, the smoke alarm didn't go off... didn't ya check your baterries?

Don't you just love our dogs :)
