Even when first responders arrived at the scene of the fire, Carmen refused to leave Ledford. She was found trying to shield his face from the blaze, local news outlet WCPO reported.
Ledford passed away at an area hospital soon after he was removed from the fire, but his devoted Carmen is sedated and currently hooked up to a ventilator at Cincinnati Care Center, an animal hospital, where a team of vets are working to save her. As of Monday afternoon, her vitals are stable.
