Jake The Rescue Dog And Honorary Firefighter Will Steal Your Heart

Bill and Jake met in a stressful, heated situation—and we mean that literally.

"The relationship between Bill and Jake started at the moment when he pulled him out of a burning shed," recalls Danielle Cromb, who is Jake's vet. "There was an immediate bond there."

As that last sentence might have given away, Jake is a dog. Bill is a human, and he's been Jake's family since the fire that brought the two together. Jake was just a few weeks old when he found himself caught in a blaze that left the pup with burns over much of his body; only Bill's intervention saved Jake from a far worse outcome.

"We weren't sure what the outcome was going to be," Danielle says, but when Jake's owners never showed up or got in touch, Bill took the puppy in.

During Jake's recovery, Bill brought the pup to the firehouse every day, because Jake had to get antibiotics every couple hours. Jake thrived among the firefighters, bonding with Bill's coworkers and making himself an integral part of the firehouse family, so much so that Jake was eventually named an honorary firefighter by the mayor of his town of Hanahan, South Carolina!

The man and the dog's first encounter was dramatic and scary. We wish them only peace and happiness during the rest of their lives together!
