They Had To Abandon Their Animals, But When They Returned The Next Day? “Miracles.”

When the Hendel family realized that the wildfires were dangerously close to their property, they had to make some very hard decisions. The fire was raging quicker than expected and they rushed to pack up the animals that they could save. Their dogs and cats came along willingly…all except one.

Their dog, a Great Pyrenees named Odin, wouldn’t leave their goats behind. They had no way to transport their bottle-raised goats out of the area, and when Odin realized that they weren’t being taken, he refused to get into the truck.

I made a decision to leave him, and I doubt I could have made him come with us if I tried. We got out with our lives and what was in our pockets.”

They were heartbroken, but there was no more time to get away safely.

Today, we were able to make it back to the smoldering wasteland of our forest. Every structure is in ruins. Trees are still burning.”

Odin had managed to not only save all of their goats, but he had rescued a group of baby deer that had survived. They even had found water in the trough, huddling together to wait out the blaze.

They had nowhere to take them, but they left food for the animals to eat and gave them fresh water while they tried to rebuild their lives. In the meantime, they know that their goats will be safe and protected by Odin!
