The picture of a man crying while holding his dog that passed on due to smoke inhalation as gone viral.
The picture, posted by a Reddit user, was taken just after firefighters brought her out of a burning house.
As flames engulfed the dog home, over 30 firefighters battled to control the blazing inferno. After hearing dog barking in panic at the height of the blaze, the firefighters broke in to rescue the dog.
“We initially ran into the leaving room but couldn’t find the dog. Then on of the guys kicked out a door and found the dog on the ground. We just wanted to get him out,” said one of the rescuers.
As a dog owner myself, I understand the pain this man was feeling when the picture was taken, and I pray that God brings peace to his heart.
