A mother dog in Vietnam has gone viral after a video of her desperately trying to save her newborn puppy melted hearts all over the internet.In the video, the dog is seen frantically digging around a flooded hole that her puppy had fallen into moments before. A man helps her, bailing water out of the hole in an effort to save the tiny pup.
Eventually, mom decided that the only way to rescue her baby was to dive into the hole herself. After disappearing for a couple of minutes, she backs back out again, carrying the limp puppy in her jaws.
For a while, it seemed that hope was lost. The tiny canine was unresponsive and apparently lifeless. But luckily, the humans looking after this furry family were just as determined as the puppy's mother and gave her CPR to try and get her breathing again.Fully revived, if quite shaken, the little dog is seen back with her mom, getting all the love and attention she needs after her scary ordeal, and back with her 2 siblings, also snuggled up to their brave mother.How the puppy ended up in the hole, no one knows, but it is likely that the mom had found a quiet place outside to give birth, away from the busy life of her humans. However, she and her little family are now safely indoors and being well cared for, if the actions of her helpers are anything to go by!
Dogs are often shown to be empathetic animals, going to great lengths to rescue other animals in need. From moms saving their puppies from fires, to a Golden Retriever saving a drowning deer, man's best friend shows their true and wonderful colors every day.Watch a video of the courageous rescue below:https://www.facebook.com/viralhog/videos/1957205941215401/
