  • by: Perry Sanders III

In a heartwarming show of bravery and compassion, a Pennsylvania police officer forced his way into a burning house to rescue a helpless puppy.

Officer Breitfeller of the Stroud Area Regional Police Department arrived on the scene of a home that was on fire and billowing with smoke. After talking to neighbors he was informed that nobody was inside -- except for a pit bull puppy.

The Stroud Area Police Department posted pictures on their Facebook page showing the frightened little puppy appropriately nicknamed "Smokey", in the arms of his hero.

The puppy is obviously a bit shooken up, but undoubtedly grateful to the officer who risked his life for another.
