A brave dog named Smokey of Sow Low in Arizona, is being hailed as a hero after he dived into a barkyard pool to save his four-legged BFF, Remus from drowning earlier this month.
According to The Dodo, Remus isn’t much of a swimmer, so he typically chills in the shallow end. On this day, Remus slipped into the water when the homeowner temporarily stepped away and left the dogs unattended to.
Seeing that his mate was in a state of distress, Smokey quickly whizzed into the water and helped push struggling Remus back onto the lip of the pool.

After reviewing footage of the dramatic save, Smokey’s humans did what most of us would these days: They posted it to Reddit, where it quickly went viral.
