When Jose Guzman from Pala, California, found that a fire on his neighbor's property had spread to his house, he knew he had to do something in order to save his beloved pit bull, Gabanna. The pet lover knew his dog was trapped inside the home and refused to risk her life, even as firefighters warned him to stay out of the house. Luckily, Gabanna is a very smart dog. She had curled up under a toilet in the only room of the house that wasn't on fire:  "I ran through the curtain of fire and made my way through the smoke to the back of the house, where I had her chained up," Guzman told People. "It was hard for me to get her leash unhooked, but I managed to get her loose and we both ran out towards the driveway. That dog is part of my family. She's been with us through downs and ups and I couldn't leave her there. I would do it again if I had to; I would do it for anybody in my family." 

Now that his act of heroism has gone viral.

Dog Miraculously Found Guarding Home Weeks After It Was Destroyed By Fire

Madison the Anatolian shepherd is breaking hearts around the world after he was found guarding his family home weeks after it was ravaged by California's Camp wildfire. 

The Anatolian shepherd's owner, Andrea Gaylord, was not able to get to her home in Paradise, Calif., when the fire began to spread Nov. 8, meaning Madison was left behind. When the evacuation order was lifted last week and Gaylord went back to the property — which had been decimated by the fire — her prayers were answered: Madison was there, seemingly protecting what little remained of his family's home. When Madison's owner, Andrea Gaylord, found the dog patiently waiting she told him, "you are the best dog. The best."
