Leo the plucky Jack Russel Cross guarding what's left of the family home in Melbourne, Australia the day after his heroics.

It was ablaze when firefighters dodged fallen power lines to reach him and four newborn kittens he had refused to leave. Firefighters carried him out in the nick of time, reviving him with oxygen
and heart massage.

[Ken Brown, Metropolitan Fire Brigade]:
"Leo wouldn't leave the kittens and it nearly cost him his life."

An 11-year-old girl suffered smoke inhalation as she made her escape.

She was at home with her mother, a five-year-old sister and 18-year-old brother when the fire started in the front room.

Firefighters managed to rescue everyone.

And thanks to Leo, the kittens haven't used up any of their nine lives.
