Two dogs jumped in a feather-light canoe that had been blown away by a gust of wind. They ended up trapped in the middle of a river with strong currents.


In a video uploaded to the YouTube channel of Rumble Viral, the two trapped dogs can be seen anxiously trying to go back to the safety but the current of the river kept pushing the canoe off the bank.

Every time they barked, the small boat moved from side to side, something that might have flipped it over. Thankfully, one of the people who were there sent his dog to rescue the other two.

When the black Labrador got in the water, it wasn’t clear how it would possibly help the other two dogs. Things got worse when the current trapped the ‘rescuer’ in the middle of the river.

While it was trying to swim toward the canoe, the current was pushing it the opposite way, so it couldn’t actually move. However, it was not necessary.


A rope had been tied to the front of the canoe, so all the Labrador had to do was wait for it to be close enough to hold it with its mouth and drag the boat with its two unconventional passengers on it.

It wasn’t easy, though, as the Labrador was clearly struggling to get out of the current. As soon as they got to the bank of the river, all three dogs were greeted by a man who appeared to be their owner.


Neither the person recording the situation nor the man who sent the black Labrador to the rescue said during the video if it was a rescue exercise or a real dangerous incident. The truth is that the dog did a flawless job.

According to Dog Time, the Labrador Retriever is a breed known as a fisherman’s helper because they can learn how to haul nets, fetch ropes, and retrieve fish from low-tempered waters.
