A pet dog in Australia has risked its life to protect four kittens trapped in a house fire, according to firefighters.

When the fire broke out inside the house, the family of four plus their other dog managed to escape.

A 37-year-old woman, her 18-year-old son, two daughters aged five and 11 and their pet dog Barney all got out of the house in the western suburb of Seddon.

Left inside was Leo and four kittens. While everyone else had rushed out of the burning house, Leo refused to leave the tiny kittens trapped inside.

When firefighters arrived they found Leo inside a bedroom, guarding the kittens in a cardboard box.

However Leo paid the price for his bravery. He suffered from the smoke and heat.

Firefighters rushed the dog to safety and revive the unconscious Leo with a heart massage and oxygen.

Leo was recovering from his ordeal and firefighters had given him a clean bill of health.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated.

Hero dog risks life to save kittens from fire
Sun Oct 26, 2008 8:36pm IST

SYDNEY (Reuters) - A dog was hailed as a hero on Sunday after it risked its life to save a litter of newborn kittens from a house fire, rescuers said.

In a case which gives the lie to the saying about 'fighting like cats and dogs', the terrier cross named Leo had to be revived with oxygen and heart massage after his ordeal. Fire broke out overnight at the house in Australia's southern city of Melbourne, where he was guarding the kittens.

Fire fighters who revived Leo said he refused to leave the building and was found by them alongside the litter of kittens, despite thick smoke.

"Leo wouldn't leave the kittens and it nearly cost him his life," fire service Commander Ken Brown told reporters.

The four kittens also survived the fire and Sunday Leo, who fire fighters nicknamed 'Smoky', was again back at the house.
