We’re lucky enough to live in a world where people go out of their way to save animals of all kinds, from dogs to dolphins. These people make the world a little better and a little richer, and inspire the rest of us to do the same.
But sometimes, it’s the humans who need the rescuing, and our animal friends prove, once again, how selfless and dedicated they are.
Dogs especially look out for our safety more than we might even realize, like the dog who keeps a watchful eye over her swimming human, ready to leap in and pull him to safety in an instant.
And what’s truly amazing is that they don’t even have to beyour dog in order to save your life.
Juan Heriberto Trevino, 14, learned this after a harrowing ordeal nearly cost him his life, but an amazing friend saved it.
Trevino was in summer camp in the Sierra Madre Oriental mountains in Mexico this past week. While gathering firewood, he slipped and fell into a ravine, becoming separated from his group and injuring himself.
Unable to get himself back to camp, he would remain in the unforgiving mountains for nearly two days.
But he wasn’t alone.He had an incredible companion who saved his life.
