Dogs have a lot a lot to teach us when it comes to being a good friend and putting other’s safety and wellbeing above your own. And this story is one more example that dogs not only make for great companions but that they also have hero potential. One dachshund’s persistence led to a dramatic water rescue of a St. Bernard, and ended up with him being hailed a hero by everyone who heard about his incredible gesture.

Razor, a little dachshund was desperate to help his best friend, Jazzy, who got trapped in mud, so somehow he alerted a passerby in Belen, New Mexico. The man knew, there’s something wrong so he alerted the authorities.

Tim Chavez, the owner believes that his 180-pound Saint Bernard got stuck in a cold, muddy ditch and remained there for more than 17 hours until his much smaller friend, a dachshund, managed to lead firefighter and police to him. “It really means a lot. You don’t really realize how attached you are to your pets until something like this happens,” Tim told KOAT.

Now both dogs are safe and sound back at home, but things could have been much different if it hadn’t been for the brave little dachshund alerting the authorities when he did. And don’t think the Saint Bernard doesn’t know that his buddy was the one who saved him. So, in return, he makes sure to shower him with affection and keep anyone who might hurt him at distance.
