This Hero Dog Valiantly Attempts To Rescue His Owner Who He Thought Was Drowning

Have we ever mentioned that dogs are great? Dogs are great. Like this dog in this video, who sees what he perceives to be his owner drowning, so he makes a valiant attempt to jump in after him and pull him to shore. Of course, the water only looked like it was a few feet deep, but the dog didn’t know that! This could have been a life or death situation!

My 13-year-old Australian Shepherd actually used to do the same thing to me when I’d go swimming, back in her younger days — but unfortunately her rescue attempts mostly consisted of pushing me even further down in the water. Oh well. Can’t fault a dog for trying!
