Last month we saw a hero dog save his master who he thought was drowning.

Now we have this man, who bashed through ice to rescue a drowning dog from a frozen river in Russia.

The video is actually from March 2014, as some Reddit users have pointed out since the video started making its way around online.

The 21-year old man who saved the dog is a mill worker named Ivan. After the rescue, the dog ran away, but Ivan ran into him again at a store where he was buying some vodka.

He then adopted the dog whom he named Rex.

But did you know they also love motorcycles?

A new film called "Sit Stay Ride," from husband-wife filmmakers Eric and Geneva Ristau, tells the story of 18 bikers and their 15 badass canine copilots.

The documentary was funded in large part through a Kickstarter campaign, and it is now available on DVD and Vimeo on Demand, with a portion of the proceeds going to the American Humane Society and other animal charities.
