Mia's owner, Chris Brumby, was amazed at how the dog survived, but said he knew she was smart.
"She acts like a human for most things," Brumby said. "And that kind of showed it. She knew where to go and hide."
He said Mia was able to get to a bathtub on the lowest level of the house, where she waited as firefighters doused the home with water. As the water ran down into the basement, it filled the bathtub and soaked Mia, keeping her safe from flames, Brock said.
Brumby said the dog has learned how to open doors throughout the house, and that she had to open four doors to get to the bathtub where she was found.
Six hours after firefighters arrived, they found Mia, wet and sooty, but well. The cause of the fire has is not yet determined. Link -via Arbroath
