A little boy in Australia is now safe and sound thanks to the heroic efforts of an adopted dog.

Max and his owner, Rob Osborn, were spending time at the beach in Port Noarlunga when Rob noticed something had gone terribly wrong. A little boy had been swimming in the water and got caught up in the current. He was tired and got swept farther out into the water near some dangerous rocks. But before Rob could jump in to save him, he realized that Max was already in the water, happily swimming around and wearing his life jacket.

Rob called out to the boy and told him to call Max’s name. The boy listened, and Max swam out to him. The boy grabbed onto the dog’s life jacket and paddled with him until they reached the shore safe and sound.
