Hero Dog Sadie

Written by Alessia

The American Humane Association gives out awards to dogs who are truly heroes. This Hero Dog, Sadie is an arson accelerant detection dog, which means she goes into burnt down structures and looks for (with her nose) any detection of an accelerant that could have started a fire such as gasoline or lighter fuel. When she finds traces of any such substance, she sits down and points to it with her nose so that her humans can investigate the source of the fire and possibly catch a perpetrator. It would take humans hours what it takes hero dog Sadie to do in seconds to minutes. She goes right into horrendous scenes and does her job every single time with no excuses not to work. She truly is a hero and a cutie at that! Thank you for your service, Sadie!

About the author


I'm Alessia, owner of a rottweiler/beagle mix named Lucas (aka Lucifer - you can put two and two together on why he gets that nickname). I love all things dogs and puppies, among many other things such as babies, coffee, and nail polish. I like to write a lot and take loads of pictures, so blogging is right up my alley. Look out for posts by me on this blog, as well as my personal blog.
