Tuff proves hero to Hendrix family
Family dog wakes owner during fire at Old River Road home
121710 DOG HERO 02 web
Megan Hendrix, 22, is grateful to her pit bull, Tuff, who warned her of a house fire Monday, December 13, 2010.
If a dog can be a hero, Tuff the pit bulldog certainly deserves that title. When the Old River Road North home of Wesley and Penny Hendrix caught fire Dec. 13, the "bullet" colored (grayish blue) pit bull saved his owner's life. The Hendrix' daughter Megan was asleep inside the home, but when Tuff saw flames, he went into action.
