Not All Heroes Wear Capes, Some Wear Collars! Family Dog Saves Puppy From Car.

It’s easy to underestimate family dogs, but sometimes their instincts and attentive nature really come in handy.

In a resurfaced viral video from 2019, a family can be seen playing with their dogs in a snowy driveway. When the lady of the house has to leave, she gets into her little blue car and starts to back up. What she doesn’t realize, however, is that the smallest puppy in the pack has wandered into the path of her car. Without intervention, the tiny dog was going to be run over by his human.

Thankfully, their older dog, which appears to be a border collie, comes flying out of nowhere and scoops up the puppy in his mouth. The dog is just a blur of fur as he whisks the smaller dog out of harm’s way like a real-life Super Dog!

“I saw something in my mirror,” the driver captioned. “First I thought I had crushed my dog. Talk about a close call!”

Watch this heroic dog in action in the video below, and don’t forget to share.
