Many dog owners treat their dogs like their children and most would do absolutely anything for their four-legged kids, even if it meant putting their own life in danger.

So when one Russian man saw his dog fall through ice on a frozen lake, he didn’t hesitate to walk out onto the icy lake in Engels, St Petersburg and save his dog even though the thin ice could have easily cracked under his body weight and left him fighting for his life as well.

After carefully crawling out to his dog on his belly, the man approached the edge of the ice and carefully tried to pull the dog out to safety, however, the dog was caught on something below the water. With just seconds to come up with a new plan, the clever man grabbed a tree branch.

Once he got his struggling dog to bite down on the branch, the hero forcefully pulled the dog out and started crawling back to shore. Thankfully, the dog only had a limp, but was otherwise unharmed and could even walk back to shore on his own.
