If you thought dogs couldn’t get any cuter, you’re about to be proven wrong.
As everyone can testify, nothing makes the world a better place than videos of dogs being fluffy bundles of pure happiness.
This video shows man’s best friend being a true hero and not just a big ole’ lovable dope.
Mark Freeley from Long Island, New York was walking his dogs along the Port Jefferson Harbor when his Golden Retriever, Storm, noticed something in the water.
In the video, you can clearly make out Storm swimming towards the aid of what we later discover is a baby deer that was pulled into the water by the tide.
“Storm just plunged into the water and started swimming out to the fawn, grabbed it by the neck, and started swimming to shore,” Freeley explained to CBS News. “And then he started nudging it, and started pulling it to make sure he was gonna be OK, I guess.”
After being saved a second time by a team of Strong Island Rescue members, the fawn is now getting the help he needs to get back on his feet.
Once Twitter caught wind of the rescue, the pup became a celeb and a hero.
I LOVE ANIMALS!
This dog saving a fawn is the best video you'll see all day.https://t.co/Cy1csFvw7T
