When Officer Robert Breitfeller arrived, the house was already billowing smoke. Neighbors told him there was no one inside the Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, home, except for a pit bull puppy.
Breitfeller didn’t hesitate, according to a Facebook post by the Stroud Area Regional Police Department, and smashed down the front door down. Then, Breitfeller disappeared into the haze.
Several anxious moments later, he emerged with a frightened puppy clinging to his chest.
‘Smokey,’ as officers called him, was soon returned to his owner, unharmed by the fire. But we wouldn’t blame the puppy if he clung a little longer to his hero’s chest.
There is, after all, a big warm heart in that uniform.
