A 2-year-old pit bull named Ace heroically saved his deaf owner on Wednesday during a frightening house fire. 

Firefighters were called to a home on the south-side of Indianapolis at 1:11 pm. The garage was engulfed in flames when they arrived.

Thirteen-year-old Nick Lamb, who is deaf, was home alone and asleep when the fire broke out. Ace immediately alert the boy to the danger by licking his face.

IFD Captain Rita Reith said, “He was thankful that Ace entered his room and licked his face until he woke up. The boy quickly covered his nose and mouth with his T-shirt and exited the rear of the house.”

“I couldn’t hear anything because I had my cochlear implants off. … My dog Ace smelled it,” Lamb said. “I just wanted to get out.”

“(Lamb) told firefighters that this was the first summer he was old enough to stay home alone and was excited to have reached that milestone,” Reith said. “He had just returned from summer camp on Sunday.”

Firefighters estimate the home suffered $175,000 worth of damage, but Ace and Lamb are happy to be alive.

This is not the first time a pit bull has taken action to save their owner. Last year, a Virginia woman was being attacked by her abusive partner, when the woman’s dog, Chako, intervened. The attacker repeatedly stabbed Chako in retailiation. Happily, he made a full recovery. 

Onyx, a 9-month-old pit bull, suffered burns on 30% of his body after waking his family at 2:00 am when a fire broke out in the home.

Jeffery, a therapy dog, has brought joy once again to Emma Wishneski, a little girl from Sandy Hook Elementary School. 

These heartwarming stories, and many more just like them, serve as powerful testaments to the loving and loyal nature of pit bulls.
