Jack licked the woman sleeping in the bedroom to awaken her and got his entire family out of the house, said the homeowner, Aubrey Lomax Jr.
“He is definitely a hero dog,” Lomax, 52, said. “He’s a blessing in disguise.”
Lomax lives at his home with his three children, one of their girlfriends, and his three young grandchildren.
“We all got out of there, that is the main thing,” he said.
Unfortunately, one of the family’s two cats died in the fire, the cause of which remains under investigation, Lomax said.
