It has been said that a dog is man’s best friend, and for one family in Mississippi, best friend isn’t even the half of it.
Jaxon the Pug, saved his family from danger and from their home from going up in flames.
The family said Jaxon barked enough to wake them up to alert them of the sparks that he saw coming from an electrical outlet.
The Pug was honored earlier this week by city officials as this year’s hometown hero.
He also was awarded an official fire fighter badge.
