The hot dog saved a family from an even hotter fate.

Diane Urquhart says her dachshund JoJo alerted the family to an electrical fire in their mobile home.

The Washington state woman tells a local paper the little wiener dog started barking the other night.

JoJo also tried pushing 11-year-old Kalen out of bed.

The couple and three children were home at the time.

The Urquharts say they rescued JoJo from the water in a local park when he was a puppy.

Now, they add Jojo has returned the favor.
