This is the incredible moment a dog tried to drag a little girl to safety after watching her go underwater in the sea. Matyas grabbed his owner’s granddaughter by the t-shirt and pulled her onto the sand, near Gouville-sur-Mer, in France. But there was just one catch – the child hadn’t been in trouble at all, and was actually thoroughly enjoying herself as she played in the water.
The footage of Matyas’ rescue attempt begins with the little girl laughing as she lies in the sea with her feet in the air. But soon a small ripple crashes over her face and the worried dog decides she has had enough splashing for the day. Gently latching on to her top, he pulls the child towards the beach until she is clear of the water’s edge. It is only then that he decides she is now safe enough for him to let go.
Luckily the little girl didn’t seem to mind, as she giggled continuously the whole way. The footage, filmed on August 3, has become a hit with social media users. Since its upload it has already gained over a million views and has been shared by thousands of dog lovers.A protective dog decided to playtime was over for his little human when she took a tumble in the ocean waves.
The two are having fun at the beach and splashing in the waves, but when he sees her tip over in the water, his lifeguard instincts take over and the little girl is rescued from the “evil ocean waves”.
