Some people are willing to risk their lives for their beloved four-legged friends.
Like a man who was on his way to saving his dog’s life needed help himself. The incident took place near the Harbor River in New York City.
A 28-year-old man was walking with his pet when he saw his dog to drown in the river. His owner, without hesitation, rushed into the river for his animal.
He reached the dog, but could not swim to the nearest land.
Fortunately, port emergency personnel rescued the dog and its self-sacrificing owner.
Many praised the man for the heroism and love he had for the dog.
Others suggested not going for a walk, leaving the dog without a collar.
Either way, these good friends are now thriving.
