A dog in Arizona has shown he is not only man's best friend but also dog's best friend after helping rescue his canine pal who was in danger drowning in a swimming pool earlier this month.

Family pets Smokey and Remus snuck into the backyard and were playing on the patio when Smokey slipped and fell into the water. The video shows Smokey becoming more and more stressed.

The incredible video was captured by Laurie Becerra and her husband Jay on security cameras, KSAT.com reported. But for these two pups, it's a dog-save-dog world.

The dog is seen struggling to get out while Remus was pacing along the side.

"When we saw the footage, we were amazed and our hearts filled with joy", the friend said.

She praised "hero" dog Remus, saying though he may be 'a insane pup but he's got a heart of gold'. My best friend cried when we sent him the video.

He swims right under Smokey and pushes him up with his body, allowing Smokey to get his front paws up over the lip of the pool and finally pull himself up out of the water. "Smokey can swim just not well", Laurie wrote on social media. They play around pool all the time with no incidence'. "He said that the dog is a real certified lifeguard".
