Mom to the Rescue: Dog Saves Her Drowning Pup in Sweet Video


When her tiny puppy fell into a hole, this momma wolf (well, German Shepherd if we’re being accurate) risks her own life to save the teeny newborn. The puppy is presumed to have been out walking with its mom and owner when it fell into a deep hole that all had thought to be a just a puddle.

In lightning fast speed that only a mother could muster, the dog is seen lurching into the hole for her baby, fully submerging her head in the filthy water. While the mom is plunging into the hole to rescue her pup, a man can be seen frantically shoveling water in an attempt to help with the rescue. But it turns out this brave momma needed no help, after fully submerging her body into the puddle she emerges with her puppy in her mouth.

The next part of the clip shows the man performing emergency CPR on the tiny puppy. It seems like an eternity as the man gently pushes on the puppies little chest. Thankfully the story has a happy ending, showing the hero doggo being reunited with her puppy, placed alongside her brothers and sisters.

We truly do not deserve dogs, with all their greatness and purity. Forget Lassi; this dog is our new hero.
