Dog Rescues Stranded Canine Pals from Drifting Canoe

Dogs are man’s best friend, but they are also other canines’ best friends too.

Robbie, a brave Labrador, jumped into a river to help two other dogs who were stranded alone in a canoe that was drifting away down a fast-flowing river.

The stranded pets were barking and whining waiting to be rescued, and when Robbie heard his friends’ calls of help he immediately went to save them.

In the video you can hear Robbie’s owner encouraging his pet to bring the canoe and its passengers to shore.

The Labrador swims against the river’s current, reaches the boat, and with its teeth grasps onto a rope that he uses to pull the canoe to shore.

Once the three amigos reach the shore, they are all greeted by Robbie’s owner.

Good job Robbie!

  1. animals !! I love them all and I ask God to watch over all ceatures great and small.Funny thing is I have never seen a stupid animal but daily I encounter stupid people

  2. Looks like a staged deal. Why would there be a rope hanging off the front of a canoe? Also why did it stop to wait for the lab to get to it?

  3. This is a total set up and the narrative is a lie. 1) The canoe is in rushing water but standing still. 2) Robbie is unable to swim upstream to the canoe and then the canoe drifts slowly down to him. It would have been fine to present it as a cool pet trick but this setup is dishonest.
