We hear incredible stories all the time of dogs rescuing their owners or doing a heroic deed. These are always stories that touch our hearts and prove why dogs are considered mans best friend. But what touches our hearts even more, is when dogs put their lives at risk to save another animal.

This video starts out a bit heartbreaking. Two dogs are seen stuck in a canoe floating down a fast paced river, scared to death. Then out of nowhere another dog jumps into the river without hesitation to attempt to get them to the bank. He grabs a rope at the front of the boat and fights the current to pull the canoe to safety. His owners who are on the bank cheer him on and encourage him to keep going. It was definitely a miracle.
