Philadelphia service dog dials 911 and saves owner's life by pulling her from house  [2]

A heroic service dog saved the day by dialing 911 and pulling her blind owner to safety after the home they shared in the Holmesburg section of Philadelphia caught fire on Thursday morning.

Yolanda, a golden retriever, called 911 on a specialized phone and alerted authorities about the blaze and firefighters responded.

They were able to rescue Yolanda’s owner – a woman in her sixties – and she was taken to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.

And get this…the dog is TRAINED to dial 911, and has done it before! You can watch the video below.
