Dog Rescued From Flood Returns To Guard His Owner’s House Despite The Risk Of Drowning

We all have a special place in our hearts for our animals. Some it'd be our family dog, others our cozy cat, either way animals tend to carry a special place in our lives. This story might cause you to cry, so grab the tissues.

Meet Druzhok.

His owner Elena Andreevs talks about him and says:

“If he wants to frolic , no chain will stop him. He will break it and run away. And when he’s had enough he comes and shows his neck like he’s saying, ‘Leash me, I’m ready.'”


“Druzhok” means “Little Friend”, and this past summer he proved that he’ll run away if he pleases, but also that he lives up to his name.

In August, the Andreevs’ and 100,000 others in their area had to be evacuated due to flooding. Of course, they took Druzhok with them. They visited stick with some friends who weren't suffering from the floods. These friends lived during a small apartment, so Druzhok stayed outside. For a few of nights he slept under their car, guarding it, and waiting like everyone else for the flooding to travel down and life to travel back to normal. on the other hand on the third morning, he was gone. they might not find him anywhere, he was nowhere to be found.

They decided to require a ship back to their house, hoping they could find him somewhere. There they found him staying out of the water by standing on the highest step of the stoop.


Poor guy looks so terrified.

Rescuers within the area told them that he wouldn’t allow them into the house and he that he refused to be taken to safety.

He stood guard of his home.But then, as soon as he heard his owners voices, he jumped right off and swam to them!

Swimming to his owners. He was finally rescued, and him and his owners couldn’t be more happy!


His owner continues the story and says:

“We sailed into the yard and saw him. He was standing there and trembling, and wouldn’t move faraway from his place. But when he saw us he was so happy. We took him into the boat and he rushed to lick us. We all were so happy.”

This just proves how loyal dogs actually are.
