‘Hero’ Puppy, Owner From Huntsville Apartment Fire Being Evicted Due To Breed

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – A 5-month-old pit bull named Queen Snow was hailed as a hero last week after alerting her owner about a fire at their apartment complex. Now both the puppy and her owner are looking for a new place to live but not because of the fire.

Amos Smith said Lincoln Apartments is kicking them out because pit bulls aren’t allowed.

Smith said management sent him a seven-day eviction notice that day after the fire. It was during that fire that the puppy alert Smith, who called 911. When firefighters arrived, they rescued one of his neighbors, who was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Smith says Queen Snow is a mixed-breed puppy. He isn’t sure which breeds, which means neither does the apartments’ management, and that’s what bothers him. Smith believes dogs are taught aggression and that it’s not something they have because of their breed.

A Huntsville Housing Authority spokesperson said she’s looking into it to see what can be done.
