Two dogs are trapped and stranded in a canoe, but then an unlikely hero tows them to safety.

Water rescues can be incredibly dangerous affairs. When two dogs were trapped in a canoe, traveling down a river with a strong current, nobody knew what to do.

Do you try and swim out to them, risking drowning against the current. Or do you go for help and hope the boat doesn’t travel too far before you get back.

In this instance, neither of those decisions were made as one brave dog dived straight into the water to rescue his friends.

Robbie, the heroic dog swam straight towards the canoe with no fear in his eyes.

As he approached, Rusty, one of the dogs in the canoe, nudged a rope into the water which Robbie then used to try and pull them back to shore.
