http://www.wdsu.com/news/30880304/de...#ixzz1rsgxplUVA dog’s motherly instinct and lifeguard skills kicked in when she spotted her little one struggling in a swimming pool.
The golden retriever quickly plunged into the backyard pool to save her puppy, which was struggling to keep afloat in the water. The mother dog used her snout to help push the pup up on the edge, but failed to push it all the way out.
She then jumped out of the water and grabbed the desperate pup by the scruff and pulled him to safety. She hauled the drenched pup farther to the grass to make sure that he was far from danger.
Although many viewers lauded the dog’s amazing rescue, some critics jeered at the owner’s indifference. They commented that the owner just filmed the rescue instead of helping out. Others, however, defended that the puppy must be being trained to swim.
