When it comes to dogs, we know for sure that they are grateful, loving creatures who never take us for granted. Whether it’s a small gesture, such as giving them a treat or a pat on the head, or something greater like the act of kindness in the video below, canines show their appreciation in the sweetest ways. If you’re owned by a dog, then you know exactly what we’re talking about. In this feel-good tale, a dog is stuck in a terrible situation. Her life hung in the balance when she became trapped in a construction site.

Rescue workers received a call about the pup and hurried over. The fire department was then brought in, knowing this wasn’t going to be a simple rescue mission. The team appointed a specific firefighter to climb down and help facilitate her safe return. He donned his protective gear and went straight to work.

He climbed down into the hole where the dog was helplessly trapped. With a rope tied around his waist, the firefighter was lowered further to get a good grip on the dog and bring her back up. It took some time, a lot of patience, and some maneuvering, but thankfully, the dog was brought to safety.

The pup couldn’t have been more grateful! She wrapped herself around the firefighter’s leg as soon as he attempted to walk away from her. We’ve never seen anything like it before! She had no intention of letting him go. Once he realized he needed some water and to confer with the team, and moved away a bit, she laid next to him on the concrete with her paws wrapped around his feet.
