Springer Spaniel Helps Push Car Down Flooded Street

 Just an awesome dog doing a good deed!

Glasgow, Scotland experienced terrible thunderstorms this August, leading to floodwaters several feet high. On Sunday August 15th, 2021, two women found themselves trapped in their car on Harland Street, which had flooded.

A kind bystander, Lori Gillies, waded through the floodwaters to assist . the entire way, her springer Puck swam right behind her to the car. What followed was an awesome and somehow adorable dog/person team rescue.

Prior to helping two people in trouble, Gillies and Puck had just been out for a daily walk. Always in sync, both dog and person visited the rear of the car to push it to drier land once they spotted it. Gillies described the events to The Daily Record:

“Puck and that i were out on our usual walk and there was a car that was stuck within the water. there have been two women inside and that i went right down to give them a hand.”

In a fantastic video of the assist she has since shared to Facebook, you'll see the sympathetic dog coming to the rescue also . Puck, the ever helpful companion, supports his person by offering up both paws to the pushing efforts. the 2 guide the car through the water from the rear .

Gillies and Puck didn’t do that for the eye though. The video was filmed by another local named Davie Keel, whose commentary adds even more to the experience. As Gillies explained when she shared it on Facebook:

“Just doing an honest deed helping this car and its owners get to drier land. Someone has filmed it and sent it to their pal, who sent it to my pal who sent it to me.”

Watch the awesome footage below:

Puck could also be into his time of life , but he’s still as wanting to dig in as when he was a pup.

“He is 10 but he's a fit 10. we've horses so he’s always on the farm and that we do munro bagging. he's on his 52nd one in 12 months.”
