Horse saves blind dog from dʀᴏᴡning in a Danube river

A dog named Abby is lucky to be alive after a horse came to her rescue during her greatest time of need.

Abby, a ʙʟɪɴᴅ dog in Ukraine, escaped from (her?) home and ran to a dock on the Danube river. He fell in and may have dʀᴏᴡn had it not been for a horse named Agripin.

Agripin had actually been swimming when he saw Abby struggling to stay above water. The river was shallow enough for Agripin to quickly reach Abby, who climbed onto the horse’s back.

The small dog’s owner, who was observing from shore, was astounded by Agripin’s water rescue of the canine.

When he saw a dog dʀᴏᴡning and in need of rescue, a horse by the name of “Agripin” was swimming close to the Danube River. Abby, a little Bʟɪɴᴅ puppy, had gotten loose from a nearby pier and drifted far from the river shore. She was unable to navigate back to land. As a result, Agripin swam over to the little dog and volunteered to take her back to land.

Agripin was able to stand upright in the water due to the river’s relative shallowness. Abby got up on Agripin’s back and rode back to shore after noticing aid had arrived.

This story happened in November of 2012, but sometimes it can take months for news to surface in other parts of the world. Although the aforementioned rescue story is fantastic, it is untrue in every way!

A few years ago, this picture and its related tale received a lot of social media attention.

The dog is not bʟɪɴᴅ, and the horse did not save it, one animal lover on wanted to make sure everyone knew. The horse is named Brenda Lee, the dog is named Lucy, and their father, Brian Sean Reid of Horses Know the Way Home, are the best of friends. Jodie Sinclair, an equine photographer, captured the lovely image. The animals are American natives.
