Good thing they listened to the dog

Hercules is a hero to a Long Island, New York, couple.

The barking of their 5-year-old boxer awakened Gus and Denise Hatzis just before 3 a.m Saturday.

Gus went downstairs to see what was wrong.

A wall in the attached garage was sagging and he moved the family cars.

Moments later, the snow-covered roof of the garage collapsed.

Newsday reports the family had to leave the house over concerns about more structural damage.
