Although the clip ends abruptly, the dog reportedly repeated the trip until all four of her puppies were rescued.
This isn't the only record of a dog saving the day in Chennai. In another remarkable incident, a stray dog stepped in to help a woman named Fathima Shaw safely navigate a flood street.
"Every time I stopped, this sweet dog would stop and wait.... I thought I was imagining it at first then I crossed the street and it crossed with me too," Shaw said, in a post on Facebook. "It started pacing back and forth when I balked at knee-deep water, came back to me THROUGH THE WATER, and showed me how to traverse it."
