Recently, parts of Mexico have been hit with strong rain storms. In many small towns and cities major roads are now under water, but among the many stories of destruction come the story of a dog turned rescuer.

In San Nicolás de los Garza, Mexico, a man was traveling in his Volkswagen with his dog. The pair attempted to cross a flooded road but the car died in the middle of it.

The man exited the vehicle and tried pushing the car. When the canine saw his human pushing the car out of the water, the Dalmatian jumped out of the vehicle and started helping. The dog imitated his owner’s action and started “pushing” the car.

The sweet act was captured in a photograph taken by Edgar Zurita. This act is a fine example that dogs are man’s best friend. They are with you, in good times and in bad times.
