As a dog slipped and struggled to free itself from a hole in a frozen pond, a woman captured a brave man on video as he tiptoed out onto the demonstrably dangerous ice.
The man attempted to throw the dog a rope but couldn't quite reach far enough, so he slowly made his way further out over the unstable ice.
Even in mortal danger, the dog waited patiently as the man inched closer toward the hole and attempted to fling it far enough out to the dog.
The dog grabbed the rope with his teeth and with the man pulling on it, was able to escape the icy water and give this video a happy ending. See for yourself, because it's the kind of moment that might convince you humans really do deserve their canine best friends.
