A few years ago a video from Brazil of a dog saving a supposedly “drowning” man went viral. And for good reason. This is one amazing dog!
In the video, a smart dog named Princesa saw that her human dad may be drowning. He was actually just testing to see what she would do. Princesa must care for him very much because she wasted no time in coming to his rescue.
The scene of the “rescue” took place in a pond where her human is swimming. The man puts his head in the water and does the dead man’s float. That’s when Princesa leaps in the water without hesitation. Then she pulls him to shore by gently taking his hand with her mouth and dragging him.

Jenifer Correa posted the clip on Facebook for all to enjoy. She wrote, “This is the gift we receive from those who are by our side and never leave us. Yes, that is care and love!”
Dogs truly are mans best friend. They watch over us in so many ways. From protecting us from intruders, saving their humans when drowning like Princesa to being there in life’s ups and downs.
We owe it to our dogs to protect them right back. By making sure they are well-fed, safe from traffic, and keeping up with your dog’s vet visits, you can love them right back in return. Make sure to give your dog an extra dozen hugs today. And go for that extra walk around the block! The love that you will receive in return is priceless.
If Princesa made you smile, make sure to share this with a friend today. There is a reason that this video is again popular. I think it’s because love never goes out of style.
