Charlie's rescue!

I want to share this video with everyone! This is a dog resue that I witnessed a few winters ago. It was later in the afternoon and the fire whistle went off and I heard it was a water rescue. I thought it was a child so I responded to see if I could help in anyway. I am not a fireman so I basicaly just kept talking to the dog to encourage him to keep his head up. He kept fliping on his back and going with the current of the water. We would yell to him and he would fight back to the ice. I didn't start filming until the fire department got there and I knew he would be rescued. I didn't wanna just film the dog drowning.
The dog was rescued and treated in an ambulance after. He then was taken to the vet and spent the night. He made a full recovery. His name is Charlie!
Part of this video was in a movie called "I AM". Its a documentary on the life of movie director Tom Shadyac. He is the director of movies like Evan Almighty and Ace Ventura. Oprah did a show on this documentary and they actually showed part of this dog rescue on Oprah also.
Charlie is a very luck dog and is still living across town!


  1. Poor Pup. So traumatic. Glad he made it through okay :)

  2. What the hell was he doing all the way out there? Good Job Guys!

  3. Goddess blessings to those who help and protect the first children of the earth.

  4. Bah! I'm crying here! The firemen probably could have said it wasn't a human and that it wasn't their job. So many people wouldn't have put the effort they put into saving this dog. To see so many men put their effort into saving this dog restores my faith in humanity. What a beautiful story.

  5. This was the sweetest video, and I am so happy that Charlie is home and alive. The firemen were amazing-heroes. Humans at their best. I fell in love with all of them and the dog. Thanks for posting.

  6. Guys, you are true heroes! you made my day, probably my week or month, this is and will be my lifetime favourite video

  7. Well done! Well, this is so nice to think about leaving comment here. Nice to meet you all.
