Hero of the Day: Man Saves Drowning Dog from Frozen River in Russia

Favorite
- -

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.

They didn't know how or why... but there they were abandoned in a neighbor's yard. I shook my head. Called a good rescue friend. And took out the camera.

She recently had puppies… and now she was nursing two small kittens.

Caring for them as if they were her own.

Protecting them and teaching them.

Compassionate and loving.

And doing all the motherly things.

And happy to have the job.
