Dog’s bark saved Alabama family as fire swept through home

Derek Walker told local media outlets in Birmingham that his dog, Ralph — a 4-year-old Great Dane who looks similar to this one — “doesn’t usually make a sound at night.” But Walker heard a “different kind of bark” coming from Ralph, so he got up to investigate. The dog has been credited with saving Walker, his wife and two children from a fire sweeping through their rental home. (Stock)
