NICK EICHER, HOST: Me and you and a dog named Boo—remember that old tune?
Here’s a story about a dog named Roux, a three-year-old Belgian Malinois.
Roux became a hero over the Fourth of July weekend when she noticed something terribly wrong.
Her owner Jeff LeCates told television station WTVF how Roux woke him up.
LECATES: She started barking frantically and turning circles at the front door, which is not a normal behavior for her.
When he opened the door to investigate, Roux burst outside, leading the owner to notice flames lapping the roof of his neighbor’s house.
So LeCates banged on their door, waking the family of three to get them to safety.
Here’s the kicker: the woman whose house caught fire, she’s the one who helped arrange the adoption of Roux. So Roux’s a rescue dog who’s just returning the favor.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
