In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, over 30,000 people were displaced due to flooding and other damage caused by the storm.

As many families fled Houston and the surrounding areas, animals were left behind. While it’s heartbreaking to hear stories of families being torn apart, from each other and their animals, many heroes emerged in the days after Harvey.

One group of men came forward to be the heroes a poor dog needed. The dog had been treading water for three days.

The circumstances of what happened to the dog’s family are unclear. But in the video below, the men quickly work to rescue her.

The man narrating the video at first thinks it is a male dog, but eventually, after she is pulled from the water, they realize she is a girl! She is so tired, she can barely stand up when they pull her into a boat.

Looking around the area she was found in, they realize there was nowhere for her to stand or lie down to get rest, meaning she was in the floodwaters the whole time.

Please SHARE this video with your friends and family if you are happy these men were able to rescue this helpless dog and get her to safety!
