Some dogs can’t seem to get enough water. They enjoy going to the beach to jump around, splash around, and play in the water.
One dog in Australia has gone above and beyond in his water activities, becoming a hero in the process.
Max is a Staffordshire terrier/bulldog hybrid. When it was most needed, the dog was able to step up.
Max had spent the majority of his early years outside after being left as a puppy. Despite this, his prior owner never took him for walks, something his new owners soon rectified after he was adopted.
The Osbornes adopted him.
“He was a little antisocial when we got him,” Jamie Osborn told The Dodo. “He’d stand up and go away if we touched him too much.” Max is an entirely different dog these days. He’s always cheerful! He’s a wonderful person who lavishes us with love and affection.”
Max is a water lover.
Max was able to overcome his fear of others thanks to the affection he received from his new family.
Max, who lives in Port Noarlunga, Australia, enjoys swimming and sleeping with his 11-year-old brother, Nev.
“We have kayaks, and he likes to swim alongside us while we paddle,” Jamie explained, “so we purchased him a life jacket so he wouldn’t get too tired.” “Because Rob enjoys surfing and snorkeling, Max is frequently seen at the beach, hanging around with the surfers while waiting for a wave.”
Max was able to save a life during a trip to the beach.
Osborn observed someone struggling in the water while he, his father, and brother were enjoying their day at the beach.
A young kid got caught in the current off the coast and became frightened.
Osborne requested Max’s assistance after observing the boy.
“Max was just swimming around in his life jacket, having a great time,” Jamie explained. “Rob had the boy call Max. Max was simply doing what he enjoys the most: swimming.”
Max swam over to the young boy and let him grab his hand. Then he swam them safely back to the beach against the current.
Max’s actions earned him the title of hero. But you’d never guess it by looking at him. He was only doing what he enjoyed the most: playing in the water.
