Jose Guzman, of California, is fortunate to be alive after entering his burning home to save his cherished pit bull dog, Gabanna, who is 2 years old.
After the dramatic rescue video went viral, Jose’s choice to enter the house to save her, for which he maintains he has no remorse, has been praised by animal lovers everywhere.
Jose said to PERSONS:
Although I was aware that anything may have occurred to either myself or the two of us, the thought didn’t cross my mind at the time. That dog belongs to my family. After she had been with us through all of her ups and downs, I couldn’t leave her there. For any member of my family, I would do it again if I could.
Joseph knew that his dog Gabanna was inside the house, even if his human family was safe, and he declared that he would not let her die in this way.
José disregarded the firefighters and entered the house without stopping to find Gabanna, who was taking refuge in the toilet, the only part of the building that wasn’t on fire. The poor thing was curled up into a ball under the toilet.
Jose’s landlord’s son-in-law, Adam Guzman, who is not related to Jose, captured the moment on tape. Jose may be seen on the video dashing despite the firemen’ protests.
