WATCH: Hero Dog Saves Smaller Dog from Drowning

A South African couple’s home security camera captured the moment one of their dogs rescued their smaller dog from drowning in the backyard pool.

Byron and Melissa Thanarayen said they returned to their home to find Chucky, their toy Pomeranian, was mysteriously wet. They checked their security camera for clues and found 13-year-old Chucky had fallen into their backyard pool while walking next to it. The video then show’s Jessie, the couple’s 7-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier, circle the pool, watching Chucky struggle, and eventually lifts Chucky out of the water with her mouth.

The couple says they will be installing a cover for the pool to keep the dogs safe when they are not home.
