Having access to the internet gives us hope that people are kinder than before. We get to witness strangers selfless act towards people and animals alike. However, being human means we can only do so much for others, and our safety comes first before we jump in to help other people, even animals.
Believe it or not, there are some who would risk their lives to help save animals in distress. Even if it’s not their duty to help, they would willingly jump in a freezing pond to rescue a dog.
It was a snowy morning in Perth when Benji, the family dog, and his owner decided to go for a walk near South Inch pond. They recalled that morning snowy when Benji slipped and fell into the pond. His owner said that Benji appears to be drowning and it was apparent he was in great distress. She was panicking and was desperately calling for help.
A couple who was also walking their dog in the park saw the incident and responded to Benji’s owner plead for help.
Benji’s rescuer said that there was a thin film of ice covering the pond, and before jumping into the freezing pond, he threw a rock and swam to rescue Benji. The family immediately took Benji to the veterinary clinic for a check-up and possible hypothermia.
It was a selfless act, knowing they are strangers and yet didn’t think twice to help them rescue their dog.
Benji’s owner was grateful for the man’s kindness and wanted to thank the couple properly. They created a post on the Missing Pets Perth and Kinross Facebook page, asking for people’s help to find the said couple. They also posted an update about Benji’s health; that he is doing great but traumatized from the incident.
Anyone know who rescued the wee dog from falling through the ice on the south Inch today!? Please help and share ❤️‘I'…
