PORTAGE, Ind. – A black Labrador that bit a 13-year-old boy’s foot repeatedly, waking him up, is being credited with saving the boy and two of his friends from a house fire. Christopher Peebles said he woke up Friday morning to feel his dog Laney biting his foot repeatedly in the basement of his family’s home, where he and two friends had spent the night.
“I thought she had to go to the bathroom, but she never bites me,” Peebles said Friday.
He and his friends walked upstairs with Laney and noticed smoke everywhere in the home.
“We came up the stairs and thought it was a dream, but it was cold when we opened the door â€” then we knew it wasn’t a dream,” Pebbles said.
