Life is about helping others without expecting anything in return. Helping others in need costs nothing. People create, maintain, and strengthen their social connections by helping others. Some people also find happiness in helping others. Even such gestures of kindness are evident in the animal kingdom.

You must have come across service animals or therapy animals that are quite helpful to others in many ways. In this era of social media, it is quite easy to get videos showing animals helping others in need. Even there are instances when animals risk their lives to help others. 

Here we bring a video that shows a dog risking its life to rescue a fawn from a river.

As seen in the video, the dog can be seen crossing a river while holding a fawn in its mouth. The canine walks to safety but accidentally drops the fawn. However, it again picks up the screaming fawn and walks forward. 

The man capturing the video seems to be the dog's owner. As soon as the dog walks to him, he holds the fawn carefully without hurting it.

Indeed, the brave dog rescued the fawn from death while risking its own life. 

One user wrote, “Such an incredible act of bravery!” (sic)

Another commented, “Poor baby. Glad the dog was on his A-game that day and saved it. Hope the Mum was still around.” (sic)

“Wow, this heroic dog really went above and beyond! Such a paw-some rescue mission!” wrote a third user. (sic)

Though the original source of the video couldn't be obtained, it has gone viral on social media. Shared by Yog on X (Formerly Twitter), the kind gesture of the dog has been liked by numerous netizens. With over 14 million views, the post is flooded with love and appreciation for the brave dog.
