A dog is hailed a hero for saving a Pomeranian from drowning in his owner’s swimming pool in a viral video making waves around the internet.
Both he and his wife Melissa searched for clues after finding both dogs drenched in water, thinking they were in the pool unsupervised, according to The Times.
(Before you start judging... we are getting the pool covered!) I can't believe she did this! It broke our hearts to see this happen when we looked at the security footage. Melissa ThanarayenPosted by Byron Thanarayen on Thursday, April 8, 2021
The video stated Jessie was able to rescue Chucky for about 34 minutes, managing to pull the dog by using her teeth. The Thanarayens told The Times South Africa that watching the video “is still heart-wrenching.”
“We still struggle to watch that video today, just thinking of what could have happened if Jessie was not there,” Byron Thanarayen said, “I’m really proud of her, considering she is (7 years old).”
A pool cover will be installed, hoping an incident like this does not occur again, The Times reported.
