A deputy in Colorado is being hailed a hero for taking immediate action to save a dog from a car that was on fire. On Thursday, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office shared video of the Jan. 22 rescue after Deputy Michael Gregorek was responding to a call of a vehicle on fire. When he got to the scene, he saw a man trying to get his dog out of an SUV. The deputy then lunged into the burning vehicle and pulled Hank out. Hank thanked the deputy the only way he knew how: by licking his hero’s face.
“A sheriff’s deputy races to a car fire, dog in the car he uses his baton to smash the side window where’s it at right here, then he shatters the rear window thick.
