Matilda, the heroine puppy. Why do we call her that? Because she ran into a fire that started in an asylum in the Leningrad region of Russia and saved four people. When she saw that the asylum was on fire, Matilda immediately entered the building and started the fire alarms. Firefighters arrived quickly and all patients were safely removed from the flames. Unfortunately, the puppy was later removed by volunteers Elena Kalinina and Alexander Tsinkevich. Due to carbon monoxide, Matilda became ill and could not go out alone.
Saving people cost her dearly, and veterinarians didn’t think they could save her. He had burns all over her body, which meant enormous pain. Moreover, Matilda is a mother-to-be. “She cried and trembled in pain, but she endured everything heroically,” a report said
