He Brought the Baby Deer To Safety

The dog swims across the river, climbs up on the bank to where his owner is standing, and the owner takes the baby deer from him. What a good boy!

We aren’t sure how the dog found the baby deer, but it’s a good thing that he did. The dog saved the deer from drowning and that’s a heartwarming thought.

We know that dogs can be great at rescuing people or other animals, think Lassie or rescue dogs, and this labrador retriever is another example of that. He saw another animal in trouble and jumped into action.

Let the Dog Be a Reminder

This dog can be a great reminder for us humans.

When we see someone in need do we jump into action as the Bible tells us to? If we can help others in different ways not only will we make this world a better place, but we are answering the call that Jesus gave us to love our neighbor as ourselves.
