Amazing video shows dog rescuing baby deer

He and his dogs Storm and Sarah were strolling on the beach when Storm jumped into the water after something. He couldn't tell what it was at first, but, as Storm got closer he could see an injured baby deer in the mouth of his dog.

When Storm got back to shore, he put the deer down and laid down next to it, encouraging it to stand up once more.

A dog from Long Island, New York is being hailed a hero after video emerged of him rescuing a deer that was drowning off a nearby beach.

The deer appeared to be breathing, so Storm and his owner stayed with it until a veterinarian and a representative from Strong Island Animal Rescue showed up, WTVT reports.

"I think it was a great thing for its instincts to kick in, to go out there and rescue it", Floridia said of Storm.

Kutzing carried the fawn back to the rescue van.

The fawn was taken to Save the Animals Rescue Foundation, a wildlife rehabilitator in Middle Island, and is recovering nicely, Kutzing said. The deer is now being treated and is expected to make a full recovery from the incident.
