“It wasn’t the best time to take a bath, but I’m glad I helped the poor puppy!”
A 24-year-old man went viral for saving a puppy that was dangerously caught in an old rope. So as to remain afloat and not drown on the surface of the water, he held the old rope with all his strength, which at an equivalent time made him sink.
The owner of this beautiful dog named Gus had no idea what was happening. He realized that his dog, which apparently was just having fun in the water, had gotten stuck on an old rope and was having a tough time staying afloat.
Paddy Bond was watching the scene and immediately jumped into the water as soon as he understood the desperate situation.
A 24-year-old rugby player from the local team immediately jumped into the icy water.
He grabbed the dog and pulled it off the old rope it had been on; eyewitnesses told Belfast Live, “The dog got stuck on the rope while swimming. The owner said his pet loved to swim, and that we all thought the dog was stubborn and didn’t want to abandoning of the rope, but when Paddy saw his hind legs, he appeared to be stuck.”
Gus was at first paralyzed by the cold, after a couple of minutes and eventually ashore, he appeared to be fully recovered.
The 24-year-old hero, after the miraculous rescue, said: “If he had been my dog, I might have done an equivalent (…) the rope was tied on his hind legs and tried to remain afloat by biting the opposite end, so he got more and more stuck whenever I pulled him away. It wasn’t the simplest time to require a shower, but I’m glad I helped the poor puppy!”.
Now, Gus has returned home as well as his owner and is enjoying the heat of the walls of his home. After this terrible adventure, nothing happened at last!
