Blind, deaf, 3-legged dog saves family from fire

GRADY COUNTY, Okla. – Katie Crosley has endured her fair share of hardship.

Her son, Jace, was born with a heart defect.

Crosley said, “We spent four weeks in NICU. When it rains, it pours, I guess.”

Early Sunday morning smoke and flames consumed their Grady County cabin.

Katie and Jace woke up to a wailing Dachshund.

A genuine miracle, she believes, considering “True,” their pet dog is blind, deaf and only has three legs.

“I thought he had to go outside,” she said. “When I opened the door, it was a wall of flames.”

An electrical short ignited a fireball on the front porch, barricading Katie and Jace inside.

They navigated through the smoke and out the back.

The fire victims lost everything, including all the baby supplies they had just collected.

“All his stuff from NICU, medical records, all gone,” she said. “So that’s the hardest part, having all that stuff from when he was little.”

There is little left here and yet, Katie is grateful for so many things, mostly the disabled Dachshund nobody wanted.

She said, “We’re thankful for him. This could have been a bad deal.”

An animal rescue that somehow returned the favor.
