Rescued a puppy who was in danger of drowning in the river and was in a dire state.


When we go out for a walk, we never know what we might find, maybe we never think about ending the day being real heroes.

Something happened to Austin Russell , who was on his annual New Year’s Eve bike ride and ended up rescuing a helpless puppy that was swearing in the water .

The incident happened in Grand River, Michigan.

Russell saw the drowning puppy in the distance and did not hesitate to stop to help him, apparently he was caught in some tree branch, while desperate the defenseless puppy looked around and tried to bark.

He was trapped near the university campus so he quickly got to the security guard.

He is a mix of pitbull and husky.

When they turned around, they found that the puppy had broken off the branch but was still struggling in the frozen water , after a few minutes of tireless struggle the puppy was able to swim but hit a large wall, causing it to fall. can’t leave.

The security guard tried to remove it with a mop but the attempt was unsuccessful, the puppy looked tired so they acted quickly.

The puppy is named Max.

Russell searched for an alternative exit, noticing that under the railroad tracks that passed near the field there was an entrance that allowed him to approach the little dog as it swam down the rising river . In this regard, the young man commented:

I lay on my stomach and the river level was perfect. My arm was just long enough to touch the dog. He didn’t have a collar, so I grabbed the skin on his neck and pulled him out of the water. “

The puppy did not stop shaking, he had been in the frozen water for a long time, luckily, he was able to hold on and was rescued. He was transferred to the Kent County Animal Shelter .

The shelter contacted his owners who alleged that Max had escaped from the backyard of the home that had been torn down.

The reason why the puppy ended up in the river is unknown.

Their owners are infinitely grateful that they have rescued their pet. They have thought about putting him up for adoption so Russell is very interested in giving him a new home .

By fate or by chance, Russell and Max will probably spend the rest of their lives together. For now, let’s celebrate this great rescue with a happy ending that will make all animal lovers smile.

We must applaud the feat of a brave man who appreciated and loved the lives of animals. I hope he stays forever with this noble dog.
