HERO DOG HONORED FOR SAVING HIS FRIEND
REMUS THE CANINE CAME TO HIS BUDDY'S RESCUE AFTER HE FOUND HIMSELF OVER THE EDGE. BACK IN APRIL, THIS BACKYARD SURVEILLANCE VIDEO WENT VIRAL. BECERRA says: "It's just awesome to know you know that no one was around and Remus still chose to do something really good." YOU CAN SEE THE DOG'S FRIEND, SMOKEY, NEARLY STRUGGLES TO GET OUT OF THE WATER AFTER JUMPING IN. LUCKILY, REMUS RUSHED TO HIS SIDE. BECERRA says: "I was out of town for work and then my parents were watching Remus and they were playing by the pool, and my dad was inside the house. And things led to things, he fell in and yeah. Remus jumped in and saved him." WELL TODAY, REMUS IS BEING RECOGNIZED AS A HOMETOWN HERO BY THE MESA FIRE DEPARTMENT FOR SAVING SMOKEY'S LIFE. CHUTE says: "It was amazing, I was like oh my gosh. It's great to see when people save lives, but also dogs can save lives too. He's just kind of embodying what we're trying to teach right now to not only people, but animals as well. He was there to help a friend in need, and so we try to teach those ABC's of water safety." REMUS'S MOM AND FAMILY SAY THEY COULDN'T BE MORE PROUD OF THE ONE-YEAR-OLD PUP. BECERRA says: "I'm a proud dog mom, that's all I got to say." HIS REWARD -- A BAG OF DOG BISCUITS FIT FOR A CANINE HERO.
