Bella, a 3-year-old golden retriever/collie mix who was once rescued as an abused puppy, returned the favor to her owners by alerting them to a house fire. With help from Maddie, a 6-month-old golden retriever, Bella helped get Sue Feuling and her 9-year-old daughter, Mckenzie, out of the house last week. The dogs didn't make it.
"Those dogs were without a doubt the heroes," said Winona Assistant Fire Chief Jim Multhaup. Bella had jumped on Feuling's bed early Friday morning and started barking, and Feuling then smelled smoke, grabbed her daughter and rushed out of the house. Sue Feuling said she was only thinking about her dogs. "Everything I lost is nothing compared to them," she said.
