Rebel now lives at home in Tulsa with his family and their four other rescue dogs. It was there that, late last month, the furry gang was enjoying a romp in the backyard when near-tragedy struck.
One of Rebel's new siblings, another Westie named Dax, took a tumble into the family's swimming pool and appeared to be unable to get out on his own. Fortunately, Rebel knew just what to do.
As this dramatic security camera footage shows, quick-thinking Rebel then leapt into action — grabbing Dax by the collar and puling him out of the water all on his own.
