A viral video showing an alert dog saving a little girl from a potentially dangerous situation is winning hearts online, besides making netizens wonder if we humans could learn a lesson or two from our canine friends in terms of care and loyalty.
The short clip posted by an account named Physics-astronomy.org shows the canine pulling a girl back to safety as she gets perilously close to stepping into a large water body to retrieve a ball. It has been viewed nearly 5 million times and shared and liked by lakhs of people.
The dog is being praised for its alertness and loyalty.
“Why can’t humans be more like dogs and want to protect and be loyal,” one Twitter user wrote.

“My dog Boy, did this to me all the time, when I was little, if I tried wandering into the street. Gotta love dogs,” reminisced one person.
