Dog saves canine friend from nearly drowning in Arizona swimming pool

Watch dog with a 'heart of gold' dive into the water to save his doggy best friend

Family pets Smokey and Remus snuck into the backyard and were playing on the patio when Smokey slipped and fell into the water.

When he pulled surveillance video of the pool, Smokey's owners realized their dog had a brush with danger - but luckily, Smokey had a friend to help him out. Smokey, who is not a strong swimmer, according to The Dodo, normally stays in the pool on the steps but this time nearly ended up in the deep end unable to figure out how to leave the pool.

The pup's owner, Laurie Becerra, said her husband, Jay, was in the house for a few minutes and the pups must have come through the fence.

In the video, the dog is seen struggling to get out while Remus was moving back and forth along the deck. But for these two pups, it's a dog-save-dog world.

A hero dog dived into a swimming pool to save his canine friend who fell into the water and couldn't get out. My best friend cried when we sent him the video.

"So Remus and Smokey received slightly rambunctious. Smokey can swim just not well, Jay recorded this off our security camera when he saw Smokey all wet!" "He said that the dog is a real certified lifeguard".

She added the dogs often play near the pool without incident.
