This was a test. And, the dog being tested passed with flying colors.

On the Riley & Scot Show, we love the hero dogs (and cats, and ferrets, and...), and we believe that this as-of-yet unidentified dog certainly fits the bill.

From Empty Lighthouse:

In a short but touching video found on the front page of Reddit's Video Subreddit a dog sits quietly while keeping an eye on his owner who is swimming in a small lake. The owner decides to show exactly how loyal his dog is and takes a bit of a dive into the lake. He holds his breath as if he has sunken in an act that would mimic someone who is having some trouble swimming.

The furry hero is quickly on it's feet before leaping into the lake swimming over to the owner and grabbing his hand to help pull him to safety. Though the owner knew how amazing his animal was he wanted the world to see.

 

Probably gets old when the owner is trying to take a bath, though.
