Our four-legged doggie friends are frequently described as being angels in disguise. They are very loyal creatures and they often play the “hero” when someone needs their help. And this adorable dog did just that.

Smokey and his pal, Remus, were on a playdate when something awful happened. Smokey is not a great swimmer, so he just wades on the steps of his family’s pool. But on this day, he fell into the deep end. The poor thing couldn’t get back out.

Smokey’s owner was inside the house and didn’t notice that the dog was drowning, but thankfully, Remus stepped up and helped his friend.

Remus jumped into the pool and saved Smokey’s life. All the action was captured on the surveillance camera.

The clip above was first shared by Smokey’s owner, who shared that her family checked the video after seeing their dog all wet. Since he is not a fan of swimming, they knew something was wrong.

“When we saw the footage we were amazed and our hearts filled with joy,” she said. “My best friend (Remus’ owner) cried when we sent her the video. She says he’s a certified lifeguard now.”

I am sure Remus and Smokey are going to be friends for life!
