Keith Walker has been homeless since he was 13 years old. The one constant in this 53-year-old's life is his dog Bravo. To keep him safe, Walker arranged to have Bravo spend nights at the Underdogs animal shelter. On December 18, Walker arrived to take Bravo for a walk and found the shelter engulfed in flames.
Firefighters at the scene had called animal control to take charge of rescuing the home's furry residents, but with the fire raging, Walker refused to wait. "I was nervous as hell, I'm not going to lie," he said, "but my dog is my best friend, and I knew I had to save all the other dogs." Scared as he might have been, Walker pulled every one of the animals -- six dogs and ten cats -- to safety.
