Good boy golden retriever saves baby deer from drowning

Posted: Updated:

Mark Freeley was walking his dog, Storm, along a beach in Long Island when the golden retriever jumped into the water and started swimming after something.

When Storm got back to shore, there was a baby deer in his mouth. After dragging the drowning deer to safety, Storm gave the fawn a couple of barks to make sure it was ok and then waited with the deer until a veterinarian arrived. The deer is expected to make a full recovery.

Freeley's Facebook post has also garnered a lot of support for the lifeguard dog. With nearly 2 thousand comments, the post has been shared more than 25 thousand times.
