Ex-police dog shows heroism as he saves couple and their 2 children from a fire

Dogs are loyal companions, able to put their lives in danger to save humans. Some show remarkable devotion and courage, like Maxx, a retired police dog.

Maxx is a German Shepherd Dog who has been specially trained to help law enforcement search for drugs and explosives, locate missing people or find evidence at a crime scene. Endowed with incredible strength, endurance and intelligence, he is an excellent working dog. For several years, the canine has taken its mission very seriously.

Today, he is enjoying his well-deserved retirement with his loving family, originally from Longwood, Florida. But an unforeseen event disturbed the tranquility of the home.
