A litter of puppies are safe thanks to their smart mama and some hardworking firefighters, according to WGME. The pregnant German Shepherd managed to escape a fire that reportedly completely destroyed a single-story home on Sanborn Hill Road in Chesterville, Maine last Thursday. That house belonged to her owner, Gary Welch. Fortunately, he was not at home at the time, and no one else was injured.
