When Campbell and her fiancée got up to see what the commotion was about they quickly realized their home was on fire. The two are parents and were able to get all three of their kids out of the house before part of the roof collapsed.
“I sit back and think about it, if that dog wouldn’t have got us up out of the bed we wouldn’t have been able to make it to the two girls in the back,” explains Campbell.
Bella’s owner, Anthony Villalobos didn’t need this to know that Bella is a good dog. She is his service dog for PTSD. Villalobos got Bella when we was in the hospital recovering from an IED blast.
“She will actually settle me down when we go out to crowded areas. She stays close to me. She provides a bubble for me,” explains Villalobos.
