During the raging storm of Hurricane Eta, a helpless pooch was struggling to keep its head above water while barely clinging onto a wall. Thankfully, this furry survivor was rescued by a group of committed individuals who put their lives on the line to save the pup.
Over the course of the past week, Tropical Storm Eta has made its way through Central America and Mexico, causing widespread devastation. The storm has resulted in the loss of hundreds of lives and has left thousands more displaced from their homes due to significant flooding and landslides that have caused extensive damage to many towns.
One of the areas that were severely affected by the floods was southeast Mexico. During the search and rescue operation conducted by the Secretaría de Marina Mexico (Mexico’s Navy), a dog was spotted standing on his hind legs, with water up to his waist. The rescue team was searching for trapped residents in the Tabasco region on November 13, 2020. The dog was holding on to a metal window box outside a house. When the rescue boat reached him, the shivering dog eagerly accepted some pets and a treat from one of the men there to save him.
The eager canine eagerly extended his paws towards the boat, indicating a desire to be rescued and taken to safety. In mere moments, the dog was successfully lifted aboard and out of danger. SEMAR Mexico recently provided an update, announcing that the pup had received medical attention and was thriving post-rescue. Furthermore, members of SEMAR Mexico have formally adopted the dog as their own. A subsequent video shared on Twitter depicts the cheerful pup frolicking with his new companions while sporting a stylish navy blue Marina jacket. The organization has launched a campaign, inviting the public to assist in selecting the perfect name for their furry friend.
