Woman Shocked After Dog Bites Her Wrist - Realizes He's Trying To Save Her

The Davis family thought about getting a dog, so when someone was giving their puppy away they decided to take him home. Although they adored him, the puppy began to grow bigger than they expected.

They soon realized that they might have made a mistake taking such a large breed into their small home with no yard space.

Though it broke their heart to think about it, they were debating whether or not they should give him to a family that could provide him with more space.

The family decided to put off the decision for a few days. Nola Davis was home alone with Patch. With her husband and two kids out of the house, she decided to have a relaxing bath.

She filled up the bathtub, cranked up the radio and slid in to relax.

As she was enjoying her bath, Patch, the family dog, burst into the bathroom. This in itself was odd, because Patch never came near the bathroom - he hated water and bath time.

Nola was even more surprised by the dog's behavior, though. The dog gripped her wrist with his teeth.

Patch wasn't hurting Nola, but he was pulling her. She got out of the tub and threw on a robe, planning to put Patch in another room. When she opened the door, she found her house was on fire.

"He held onto me, and then he would turn, and make sure that I ran into his back end before we went any further," said Nola.

Once safely outside, Nola realized the car was parked up against the house. She was afraid that it, too, would catch fire and maybe explode.

She tried to re-enter the house to fetch her keys from the front room, but Patch would not let her go back inside. He pushed her aggressively off the porch.

At that point, the house exploded. "He saved me twice," Nola said.

Everything was destroyed, and the Davis family had to move into a new home. They made sure to get one with plenty of room for Patch, who they decided to keep after all.
