Smokey and Remus are two dogs that live with their human parents, Laurie and Jay Becerra. One day, the unthinkable happened when Smokey accidentally slipped and fell into the family’s backyard pool. But Remus acted quickly to lend a paw.
The Becerra’s have a camera outside of their home that records 24/7 so the entire heart-pounding rescue was recorded. As you can see in the below video, Smokey clearly struggles and is close to drowning when Remus springs into action. His first couple of attempts were unsuccessful, but Remus didn’t give up. Amazingly, Remus jumped in and used his body to push Smokey back onto land.
So Remus and Smokey got a little rambunctious. Smokey can swim just not well ( as video shows ) watch video all the way to end.Jay recorded this off our security camera when he saw Smokey all wet ! Remus May be a crazy pup but he’s got a heart of gold !! My hero. Please no back lash jay was in house for few minutes and they must have come thru fence. They play around pool all the time with no incidence.(For licensing or usage, contact firstname.lastname@example.org)

Thankfully, neither dog was harmed. “Jay saw Smokey all wet and wanted to see what happened. They were horsing around and he just fell in,” Laurie told ABC KSAT. Well done, Remus!

Please never leave dogs unattended when they are outside, especially when they are near a pool or another body of water.
