Brave Stray Mother Dog Risks Her Life To Save Her Puppy Stranded In Floodwaters

They say there is nothing more powerful than motherly love, and we have one seriously touching video that proves it.

The viral clip captured a touching moment when a wandering mother jumped into a swollen river to rescue her puppy stranded in floodwaters in China’s southwestern province of Sichuan.

The dog and her five puppies were left stranded in the water after their temporary home was swallowed by a rising tide.

Locals gathered and called police for help after seeing the dog family struggle to return to the mainland.

A kind man swam the flood waters and managed to save the dog’s mother and her puppies. But unfortunately, he just saved four babies as the wide river continued to flourish. A police officer prevented him from rescuing the dog’s last baby because he thought it was too dangerous for the man to return to the river.

After noticing the disappearance of one baby, the brave mother immediately turned around and ran back to the river to pick up the puppy. Despite the dangers, she jumped and swam as fast as she could to save her baby.

Watch the heartwarming video below:

As you can see in the video, the small dog eagerly swam towards the puppy stuck between tree branches and then carried the baby back with its mouth.

Residents cheered and applauded as the dog managed to get herself and her pup back to land safely. What an amazing Mama!

The video quickly went viral after it was shared on Chinese social networks on Thursday.

Everyone was touched by the brave act of the mother dog, praising it as the ‘strength of the mother’s love’.

‘This is truly the power of a mother’s love. No matter how dangerous it is, she always wants to protect her children,’ one commenter wrote.

Another one said: ‘A mother’s love is extraordinary, no matter if you are humans or animals! So much respect for the mother dog!’
