A Georgia family will be able to ring in the New Year thanks to their loyal dog who successfully alerted them to a devastating house fire, reported Thursday’s WRCB TV News.

On Sunday night, while Jennifer Ross and her family were sound asleep, fire crept throughout their Gordon County home.

The family’s intuitive pit bull, “Bella,” noticed the looming danger first.

Earlier this year, a flood as large as Texas and California combined devastated an area of Eastern Russia, but one loyal pup was adamant on guarding his family home against the rising tide of flood water.
