Firefighters from Norfolk met a group of furry friends after they were called to a house fire in Banham.
Crews from Attleborough, Diss and Thetford were called to a roof fire in Banham Road, Banham, but it was extinguished before they arrived.
But when they entered the property to conduct checks they were greeted by seven golden retriever puppies.
On Twitter the service took the moment as a perfect opportunity to raise awareness of fire safety in the home.
A post said: "A paw-fect result for firefighters from Thetford, Attleborough, Diss attending a recent house fire.
