Man Rescues Distressed Dog, And Dog Thanks Him With All His Heart

He was almost drowning when out of nowhere, a good Samaritan rolled up his pants and jumped into the water. This unthinkable and selfless act, fortunately, saved the little puppy’s life just in time.

The man pulled the pup out of the water and crossed the dangerous waters with him. As he reached the other side, he handed the dog to his partner.

The dog jumped up and down with pure joy as he was finally on safe grounds.

  1. He is a good Samaritan to a dog – I would have done the same thing myself. Poor puppy, don’t think he knew what to do but then again he may have been so scared he couldn’t.

  2. Luckily that pup had one of us around. Us meaning well meaning people who jump right in to save a dog. In my case it was in a brackish river where blacktip sharks swim in the Summer which I don’t know how – to swim that is. I’m simply trying to establish that I love dogs & have gone to exteme measures to save dogs. All before I say, ” PLEASE don’t BUY a DOG (or any animal) from a store! RESCUE A DOG (pet dog, cat, horse, rabbit) FROM A SHELTER & BE A LIFESAVER!”

    • so true, I have 2 dogs and 2 cats and all of them rescued. The dogs I got from the animal shelter both females and adorable, the cats both were feral, one I got as a kitten and I bottle fed him and he is now 23 pounds and the other one I am still working with it and he still has a little bit of feral in him, he is still in a big cage and he does come out when I come into the room. Sometimes he lets me pet him and other times he tried to bite but not hard, he is coming around and has only been indoors for 8 months, I still have a bit to go with him and my other animals DO NOT LIKE HIM. He is in a big spare bedroom and once I clear out the room I will let him out of the cage so he can wonder and look out the window. Right now the giant cage is by a window which he loves to look out. I always tell people PLEASE SAVE A LIFE AND ADOPT…..

    • Shut down all puppy mills. There is absolutely no reason for people to make a few bucks putting a bitch through years of breeding and whelping. And so many perfectly wonderful mixed breed dogs are put down or worse. Why can’t we have laws to protect animals? I just don’t get it.

      • Totally agree with Roz about creating laws to protect animals against backyard breeders and other breeding for profit…already too many animals being euthanized due to overcrowded shelters dumped by irresponsible, ignorant former owners…people are beginning to “suck” more every day…selfish, egocentric pigs.

  3. ” PLEASE don’t BUY a DOG (or any animal) from a store! RESCUE A DOG (pet dog, cat, horse, rabbit) FROM A SHELTER & BE A LIFESAVER!”

    • Many people like to get a dog with a known history of health and also some prefer a specific breed. Ethical breeders – not back-yard breeders who just breed because they have a dog…spend monies on making sure they only breed healthy dogs that have no bad hips, deafness, blindness and other genetic problems and raise their pups in the house with love and lots of socialization. Perhaps there would be less rescues if like in other countries people did not have all those shelters and rescues to dump their dogs at. Rescue dogs have become a business and it is sad to see. Good breeders even take their dogs back if no longer wanted

      • Not sure which side of the issue you’re on. The abandoned dogs came first – not the shelters where people can “dump their dogs”. On another point: It is common knowledge that (in general) mixed breed dogs are healthier and have less genetic issues than pure bred. Look at the American collie. It’s brain is shrinking because the pointed nose – in the extreme – is preferred. As for breeders who only breed dogs w/o faults, that is just the roll of the dice and cannot be predicted by genetic markers where the breed itself is a carrier of certain faults. And what do they do with the imperfect pups when they are born? All in all, it’s not an occupation that is needed in this society where cruelty is rampant – especially among poor people in rural areas. Same thing with horse breeders. But that is a rant for another day.

        • You’re absolutely wrong about mixed breeds being healthier and have fewer genetic issues than pure breeds. That “common knowledge” is false, as common knowledge often is. Responsible breeders work to improve their breed. I’m not talking about puppy mills–I offer no defense for them! They’re heinous and I would love to see them disappear. But that doesn’t require us to attack purebred dogs or the people who breed them. That’s a non sequitur. Pure bred breeders are not the equivalent of puppy mills. People who don’t know the difference are poorly informed and are jumping to an outrageous and unjust conclusion. Good breeders (not puppy mill breeders) treat those dogs like royalty. They’re dog lovers themselves, and they’re committed to improving and strengthening their line. As for your theory about genetics and the roll of the dice, that’s inaccurate as well. Purposeful, knowledgeable, informed breeding with close attention to eliminating breed faults (for example, hip dysplasia) is exactly how you strengthen a breed, not weaken it. Dogs running loose in the streets breeding indiscriminately based on whatever females are in heat–THERE’s that roll of the dice you mention. Breeders match sire and dam carefully to try to eliminate breed problems and to produce strong dogs with good temperament. As for your urging people to adopt rescue dogs INSTEAD OF purebreds, what are you thinking? Purebred dogs deserve good homes and loving care every bit as much as mixed breeds. Bottom line: every dog deserves a good home, good veterinary care, and lots of love and attention. People who sneer at purebreds aren’t truly dog lovers. They just love their own cause rather than the actual dogs. If you encourage people to reject purebreds and turn animal abuse into an us-versus-them war, we’ll never make any headway. We should be working together, not against each other. Choose a mixed breed if you like, but don’t indulge in illogical assumptions and blanket condemnation of things you know little about. Just my opinion, but at least it’s not just based on what I read on the internet. (By the way, lest anyone jump to more false conclusions: I’m not a breeder. Right now I don’t even own a dog, so I have “no dog in this fight, as the saying goes. I just love dogs, pure bred or mixed, enough not to have one right now when I’m not in a position to give it the attention, time, and training it deserves.) (Oh dear, I just spotted another non sequitur, this one in the comment below: “Breeding is a business–they just want to make money. Period.” Lumping into one group with one common motive every breeder throughout the world? Interesting but ludicrous, as most sweeping generalizations based on assumption are.)

        • Poor people in rural areas??????? Thats a sweeping and untrue generalization. As a person brought up in a rural area, i have seen as much, if not more cruelty in the wealthy and middle classes. Animal cruelty covers all classes, and to say that poor people are cruel to their dogs is untrue. Most poor people i know, treat their animals like family. Perhaps you need to check your facts before spouting untruths.

      • Breeding IS a business – they just want to make money. Period. Maybe if there were no breeder, like in other countries, there wouldn’t be so many dogs in need of rescue. Seriously, think your argument through first. You have a fantasy of what an “ethical” breeder is. These ppl view animals as property; as income and have no sense of the greater need of these living breathing creatures. If they were “ethical” they wouldn’t be force-producing more animals when we can’t even take care of the ones already here. They would fighting to find homes for the animals in the shelters!! They view animals as a paycheck nothing more. They keep them “healthy”, while removing them from their mothers unethically soon, so they get more $$! They are not champions of animals.

        • Quin not ever breeder treats their dogs like property. I am a breeder of great Danes. I have been breeding for many years. I only have one female at a time, only breed her every 2 years and she will never have more than 2 or three litters. My dogs live in my home, sleep in my bed, and are part of my family. I love the great Dane breed and want to keep a pure line. If a female has a liter with any medical issues the pups will be sold as pets only and she will be not allowed to have another litter. Not all small breeders are unethical. The female I have now had two litters, the first was perfect 8 wonderful pups all checked for any issues, they are 8 now and all still healthy and happy. Her second litter was also 8 pups, they are 6 now. Not all pups were healthy, one cleft pallet and one deaf. We had her fixed after she finished nursing the litter, because of the possibility that the genetics of this female could have been compromised. “By the way the deaf pup is in a wonderful loving home, and we hand fed the cleft pallet puppy and he is 6, fixed, and a wonderful companion dog for a little girl with some issues” momma still lives with me, she is almost 11 years old, completely healthy and sleeps with me every night. I will get another female and have another litter some day, but not until my fancy has passed. It wouldn’t be fair to her. I don’t get rid of my females just because they are no longer breeding, I keep them until they have lived out their lives. By the way a females will never have a litter after the age of 6. Usually it is year 2, 4, and 6 as long as there are no issues. My last female lived to be 13 years old, her last litter was when she was six and then she had an additional 7 years being pampered living with me as part of my family, just as she was when she was a breeding female.

        • I don’t know of any countries that don’t have breeders of purebred dogs. Not all people who choose to own or breed a purebred dog are bad. I have a purebred dog that lives in my house and sleeps in my bed. I spend a ton of money on top quality food, treats and vetting. I have never thought of my dog as a paycheck.
          I do occasionally breed my dog to another healthy, well bred, registered (with AKC) dog and the waiting list to get one of my puppies can be 2-3 years, since I only breed once a year. I spend my free time rescuing dogs from our county high kill shelter, I foster dogs(mostly pit bulls and coon hounds)for a local rescue and I organize fundraisers for them. I view my dog as a family member, not property. To assume all people who breed a dog are irresponsible is ridiculous– like assuming all people who have brains are capable of thinking reasonably.

      • Ethical breeders do not wean pups too early or any of the other crap you spout. Go learn something about a thing before passing ignorant judgement!

  4. to the men who rescued this dog,..i have asked God to bless you both because you have hearts of gold and an obvious love for animals. Thank you so much for being real and loving. bless you and your families always.

  5. This is so awesome this story this man rescuring this dog. I am so upset with people breeding their dogs to make money like $ 400.00 what is wrong with them? Not just the people breeding them but the people buying them. And with people starving and can not afford to feed their families and all the homeless animals on the street without shelter and food. To all those who care I thank you and bless you.

      • Where did you get that number for rescuing a dog from the shelter? Its not even close to that price! All my dogs over the years have been rescues (we have 2 now) and they were about $20 each from the local animal shelters ! And they are absolutely wonderful.

        One of my rescues *terrier spaniel mix”, I trained to be a therapy dog. We volunteered at the UCLA hospital on the intensive care ward visiting patients twice a month. Many of the patients we visited, were in the hospital for long periods of time and could not get out of bed. So when my dog Lucy and I came down the hall in the intensive care ward (ICU) the response was amazing! Those who could, got up out of their beds and asked if the dog could come visit them. And of coursre that is exactly what we did. Lucy would get up on the foot of the bed with patients who were bedridden. She would lie down next to them and the patients just loved having something to think about other than how ill they were. Other patients who were able to walk, would get up and take Lucy for a walk around the hospital

        Of course, Lucy had been through obedience school with me, so she knew to walk quietly with the patient, (no pulling, barking or inapropriate behavior.) She was also trained to get up on the bed in the specific place that the patient requested (avoiding sensitive areas) It is just an amazing program. Look up “pet partners” if you are interested in finding out more about the program.
        And speaking of $$$, all the dog training was done with a nonprofit organization so it was in the $40 range for 6 to 8 weeks of training.

  6. Did the sweet puppy have a home to go to or was it a stray? I hope the heroes who rescued him found him a loving, forever home.

    • Maybe they just set them free? Sometimes the shelters kill the dogs within weeks. At times, I feel a little happy if the dog can have a long life making it on his own. They might live longer being in freedom. I don’t know. I’m torn about this.

      • They usually starve and die horrible deaths. I live in the desert, and people dump dogs here all the time. We rescued one who was dumped during a snow years ago. You and other need to realize that dogs have been bred to be with people, and MOST need people to care for them. They do NOT instinctively know how to hunt and survive. The pups were raised by people, not their mother. Better a quick death and a chance at adoption. I’ve seen dogs who DO make it, and their poor lives are so miserable as you see their emaciated bodies as they run off with scraps from the trash.

  7. It makes me feel really good to see someone helping this poor, young dog. All I can say to the man is “Thanks for being so caring “

  8. This man must be an animal lover like a lot of us me included, I most certainly would have done the same thing Thankyou who ever you are your a kind man

  9. Thanks for saving this dogs life fantastic. All our dogs have been rescue dogs which is the best place as ones home always get checked first.

  10. just a wonderful story! this precious pup did what most of us should do when someone rescue’s us or help’s us show that person. this husky was so happy to be saved by brave men who saved this dog in distress!! I SAY THANK YOU TO ALL INVOLVED IN RECUING THIS PUP!!!!

  11. This is so heart-warming, but I wish they could have rescued him without “scruffing” him. That can be very painful for an adult dog or cat. Oh well, at least the dog is safe. They’re good people.

  12. If you hit an animal, go back and make sure it’s dead. My mom taught us this. Never let an animal suffer. Recently a friend dropped off a coyote road-kill, saying he’d be back later to skin it. After he left I grabbed a leg-no rigor.?? Checked her chest, found a heartbeat and still breathing. I ran to my neighbor who came over and quickly dispatched her with his service revolver. I later found out she had been laying in the center of the road for at least 4 hour. The poor girl!! Make sure your roadkill is DEAD. I am glad we were able to help her out of her misery.

  13. And did they adopt the dog, or at least find its home?? I hope so!! They were wonderful to havevrescued it but if it was just left to fend for itself again it may very well have drowned after all…..😥

  14. What happens to the animals that are not sold? Don’t they deserve a chance at life, too? And thank you two men for rescuing that beautiful pup!

  15. God Bless you I know you had to have had great Parents to have raise you both right, the loving and caring way to treat people and animals… Thanks you so much…….

  16. all animals fell love and devotion all we need to is give it back . if I had the money I would have a place for them all . their is no bad animal only bad people , I think we were put here to take care of those that need us . god I ;love all animals.

  17. Without animals there is no future for humans . This includes all life. we are learning through technology that the best of humans relate to animals, The worst of humans the animals are the ones relating. We have evrything regards compassion to learn from animals. Stop the cruelty. Trades with animals.Torture Testing pscho violence on animals for pleasure , baiting etc. fur trades skin trades. Save the animals,try to eat free range free lived and properly slaughtered meat where possible. Take the trade out of mass cruel meat production. Eat less meat. Be selective when you eat it. I am vegan for all reasons. But I know its not for all. This is the greatest power we have . our own choices.home a rescue animal if you can.Everything you do is very impotrant. I know I love each of you who do this. Because you show love x

  18. I also want to day THANK YOU for saving this dog. You are a very amazing, wonderful person for doing this. Hug to you for what you did

    • Great person to rescue the dog! No doubt a Husky, I have one just like that! And who knows where the dog came from, he could of been from a Rescue, there are soooo many Huskies up for Adoption in the State I live in, don’t be sooo quick to judge!

  19. Great story, BUT I hope no one ever goes “into a store to buy” a pet. There are huge amounts of wonderful pets up for adoption in shelters. Many of them wonderful potential companions. Many “pet store pets” are from back yard puppy/kitten mills. All kinds of genetic issues…

  20. I have found a kitten be for xmass the vets says that he was dumpt but now he is very happy and I get lots off cuddles from him ,,,, I ddo got other cats and a white GSD my pets are my kids and I would do any things for theme

  21. Adopted dog, part of the family. Purchased dog, a curio…… I adopted both of mine. They have the same rights I do. I one is in my seat, I look for a new place to sit. She was there first. When she asks for my time I give it. They are like my like, no they are my children. BTW, stop calling people owners, or masters. We are the equivalent to their parents. It is our responsibility to protect them, see to their needs, and love them.

    I recently lost my lease also, I was unable to find an apartment that would allow dogs. The absolute last thing I was going to do was dump my best friend. It cost me more, but we have a home. My dogs will live out the rest of their lives with me an my wife. Would you dump your child???

  22. so nice to see real animal lovers, or do you love some then turn around and eat some? You really can’t say you love animals if you eat their dead tortured bodies!

  23. Great that this pup was rescued, but why all these idiotic attacks on all breeders? It seems most of the comments are written by people who can’t tell the difference between puppy mills and ethical breeders. And they are so stupid they don’t realize that if ALL breeders were put out of business, there’d be no more dogs!

  24. I got my dogs from the local pound. But my cat? No. I got my cat from the raccoons. I don’t know how or where the raccoons got this little kitten, but they treated it like one of their babies.

  25. stupid article. to dupe people into reading this: “the dog jumped up and down…” and not seeing a picture of it doing so! stupid! I dislike all your ‘commercials’ toward this end.
