Hero Dog Saves Girl from Icy River

It's stories like this that remind me how selfless and loyal our canine companions truly are. An amazing 8-year-old Labrador Retriever/Husky mix named Rocky is credited with saving the life of a little girl who fell into the North Saskatchewan River. A man spotted the girl while walking his dog, and his dog immediately jumped into the icy water beside the struggling girl. She was able to grab onto his leash and the dog pulled her back to shore. Without the brave efforts of this man and his dog, this little girl may not be alive to tell the tale.
