The poor animal was barely able to keep its head above the water and it is clear that it is absolutely terrified.
Another passerby can be heard calling out to the rescuer that he doesn’t need to save the dog but the dog-rescuer ignores him and continues his mission
Onlookers cheer the man as he tries to fish the drowning puppy out of the freezing waters.
