Jeter, a 5 year old, 120 pound Great Pyrenees, saved the lives of Glenda Moss and her 19 year old son, David, by alerting them to a fire in their Piqua, Ohio home. (h/t Nancy at ViewsNews)


Moss was sleeping in a recliner in the living room when Jeter, who usually slept in the bay window nearby, “was right up in my face, all over me,” she said. “I tried to shove him away, then I smelled the smoke.”


Moss ran down the hall to wake up David before they fled through the front door.


“For some reason, (Jeter) turned around and went back in the house,” Moss said.


Jeter, named after the Yankee shortstop, was adopted from the Humane Society after being starved, beaten and abused.  Jeter perished when he went back in the house after saving the family.
