You can truly tell that these firefighters cared about Hex, and this wasn’t just another day on the job for them. With the amount of kisses Hex is giving, she cares about them as well. For a situation that could have gone bad quickly, all parties seem to have gotten out just fine.

“Hex will be going to her forever home as Asheville Humane Society has adopted her out to a wonderful family where she will have an absolutely great life,” Animal Hospital of North Asheville wrote on their Facebook page. “Her physical scars will always be a part of her, but otherwise she is a healthy, happy puppy with many, many people who will always love her.”
