This Man Saved A Drowning Dog & Now The Internet Is Falling To Bits
A video of the incident is making rounds on the Russian internet - and it's SOOO adorable!
A YouTube clip of a half-naked Russian breaking through the ice to rescue a drowning hound has become a viral hit.
According to the description, the man behind the camera was helping out a couple of dudes, whose car broke down near a river, when they spotted the poor pup in the icy river.
Then one of the men takes off his shirt and quickly dives into the freezing-cold water. Breaking the ice down with his elbows, he slowly approaches the animal and eventually drags him out onto the surface.
As the author explains, both the hero and the rescuee were fine, warming up inside the car with a few chugs of vodka (as one does in Russia).
The happy doggy also got a treat (a few sausages), was dubbed Rex and went home with his new master.
Notably, saving pets in peril seems to be one of the favourite Russian past times - check out this awesome soldier rescuing a cat stuck in a tree.
