Smokey and Remus, the dog buddies, were reportedly getting "rambunctious" earlier this month at their home in Mesa, Ariz.
The video came from Laurie and Jay Becerra who praised Remus as a hero. "Smokey can swim just not well, Jay recorded this off our security camera when he saw Smokey all wet!"
When he reviewed the video surveillance of the pool, he saw that the dog was in a unsafe situation, but fortunately, Smokey had a friend to help.
As Smokey treaded water, Remus could be seen running back and forth, as if to try to get his friend to swim over to the pool's steps. But their other dog, named Remus, quickly went to work.
"So Remus and Smokey got a little rambunctious".
"When we saw the footage we were amazed and our hearts filled with joy", a friend of Becerra's who posted the video to Reddit told The Dodo. My best friend cried when we sent him the video. After a few unsuccessful attempts, Remus jumps in and uses his body to push Smokey out of the water.
Smokey had fallen into the swimming pool by accident when the two were playing in the back yard. "She says he's a certified lifeguard now".
She added that her husband had stepped into the house for a short time and that Smokey must have busted through a fence that kept him away from the water.
