It might have been sheer curiosity, or plain animal instinct. Call it as you wish, this pup is named a hero, after jumping into the waters in the harbor off Long Island, New York to save a fawn from drowning!

Mark Freeley was walking his English golden retriever Storm along the Long Island Sound, when the brave dog spotted the baby animal fighting against the water for some air. Without a second thought, Storm jumped into the water and started swimming in the direction of the fawn, got a hold of it by the neck and swam with it to shore.

As soon as they touched dry land, the obviously frightened baby deer started running for the woods, but Storm wouldn’t let him, despite his owner’s praises. It seems he just wanted to make sure that the poor animal was alright, before letting it go home. We can see him nudging and pulling the fawn to be certain it was stable.

Mark instantly called for experts from the Rescue League to tend to the unfortunate baby, but as soon as they arrived on the scene, the fawn darted back for the water. It was the humans who went in to save it this time.

The fawn was taken to a Long Island nonprofit for rescued animals called the Star Foundation, where it would be treated for a few months until it can recover and go safely back into the wild.

Storm isn’t just a good boy, he’s a hero. He rescued a baby deer when it began to drown in the water. Watch as the quick-to-act dog drags the lifeless body of the young deer to shore and tries to reanimate it. When the animal is safe and sound, the brave canine can be seen struggling to make a contact with the exhausted deer by touching it with the paw, barking at it in order to make contact. Dogs are wonderful creatures, and this one is our hero of the day! Praise!

Dogs aren’t just our pets, they are our lifelong companions. A soul to confide in, a teach for some very important lessons and a best friend, someone you can always count on. Which shouldn’t be at all surprising to see when this dog helped pull his buddy out from the rushing water with his quick thinking. Or maybe he was just all too eager to get the stick?

In this other video we see another dog in action, on a mission to save his best friend from drowning. A family took their two dogs, a black and golden Labradors, to a nearby river for some swimming. They say both dogs love the water and they love fetching sticks. Nothing unusual there. But when the black pup gets himself into a tight situation, it is what his sibling that got us cheering!

We see the two dogs standing on a rock by the river, when the black lab jumps into the water to fetch the stick his owner threw. As it was trying to get back on the rocks, the slippery surface sent the dog back into the water and straight into the rushing waterfall underneath. The pup tries to keep his nose and stick above the water, creating a perfect opportunity for his brother to get his canines on that piece of wood!

We can’t be sure whether they thought they were playing or the goldie knew his brother was in danger, so he grabbed him and pulled him out. It was spectacular to watch nonetheless!
