After the Grenfell Tower Fire, Heroic Dogs Put on Tiny Boots to Help Emergency Services
The Grenfell Tower fire saw emergency services, Londoners, and even dogs come together to help those who were gravely affected by the horrific incident.
While firefighters worked tirelessly, around the clock, they were accompanied by 'helping paws'.
The pooches enlisted as fire dogs were brought on board to access the most dangerous and inaccessible areas. Trained in using positive reinforcement techniques, these dogs wore tiny boots to protect their paws from intense heat and sharp objects.
Dogs have such a heightened sense of smell that they can locate the source of fires to the point where it can also be determined if a fire was started deliberately.
The blaze left 30 people dead with officials still estimating the tragedy to have left more victims in its wake.
