After two dogs managed to get near the swimming pool of their house in Mesa, Arizona, it nearly ended catastrophically.
When one pup called Smokey got into difficulty while paddling, he struggled to keep his head in the water. With his owner inside the house, unaware of what was going on, things could have gone so badly.
According to owner Laurie Sorsen Becerra, who posted the video on Facebook, the two “rambunctious” dogs are used to playing around in the pool without any problems.
After reviewing the CCTV footage, Laurie goes on to explain how the two dogs must have got through to the pool area through a hole in their fence.
After getting stuck paddling in the pool, Smokey couldn’t manage to pull himself up and out of the pool. Whilst his owner was inside, it was down to Smokey’s four legged friend, Remus to step in. After frantically running around not knowing how to respond, Remus finally plucked up the courage and jumped in to save his friend.
