The quick actions of a man in Russia saved the life of a Pug and the rescue was all caught on a security camera.

The security footage from an apartment building in the Russian city of Perm shows a woman with her pug waiting for an elevator in the lobby. The woman and the pug boarded the elevator but just as the doors were closing the pug darted out at the last second. The pug’s leash was caught in the elevator door and as the elevator began to rise the pug was pulled along.

Luckily a man waiting in the lobby acted quickly and grabbed the dog and unhooked it from its leash. The man’s quick thinking saved the pug from suffering and  being killed from the incident.
