In Iquique, Chile, firefighters put their lives on the line to save the lives of others every day. However, it’s their four-legged friend that passed away this week whose receiving all the attention.
For over ten years, their dog Negro lived with the firefighters of Iquique Fire Department. With his station dog job, he kept watch of the firehouse while the fighters responded to calls. He always had a wagging tail to greet them with when they came back.
Without a doubt, the dog’s cheery attitude always helped the job be less stressful. The dog’s happy presence helped ease the stress of those around him as they went about their often dangerous work, and made the long stretches of quiet more enjoyable in between. Sadly, Negro recently passed away.
