A dog rescued from floodwaters by Naval officers stole hearts all over the world. And his inspiring short story is just the kind of good news we all need to hear!
Heavy rains pummeled the southern region of Mexico, giving way to some of the worst floodings the area has seen in 50 years. And trapped in all of that was a terrified golden Labrador retriever.
Thankfully, God had placed some special angels in the dog’s path!
The poor pup clung to the railing of a house, as a boat from the Mexican Navy sailed towar him. His sad eyes begged for help and further emphasized the urgency of his situation.
As the boat neared the terrified animal, he transitioned his paws from the railing to the side of the boat. The dog rescued from floodwaters clearly knew these humans were there to help!

In a world full of sorrow, let us be the ones who rescue the helpless, let us reach out a hand to save a life, let us be the ones who care. One day, we may be the ones who need rescuing!

A New Home For Rescued Pup
After no one came forward to claim the dog rescued from the floodwaters, the Mexican Navy decided they would adopt him. He is now an official member of the force! The Navy even invited the pup’s millions of followers to help name him (results were still pending at the time of writing).
