Rescuers Couldn’t Believe This Appeared When They Were Trying To Save This Pit Bull

When this pit bull became lost in a river in Tampa, Florida, he was totally terrified. But when rescuers arrived on the scene, they discovered that the frightened pup was not alone. We all know having someone with you when your terrified and alone makes all the difference.  There’s just something comforting about having someone stick by you in times of need.

Rescuers from the Tampa Police Department rushed to the scene to help the poor pit bull. When they got there, they saw something in the water, a manatee!


It was an unbelievable act of true kindness. The manatee had stuck by the terrified dog until help arrived, keeping him company through the whole ordeal. Thankfully, the police were able to take it from there.


As the police put it, “His manatee kept our scared, wet pup company until TPD Marine Patrol could complete the rescue. You don’t see that every day, and it’s a great reminder [of] the importance of kindness.”


It wasn’t too long before the pup was returned to his happy family, they were so anxious to have him back in the house and grateful for the unlikely friend who kept him company.



Manatees are such kind animals. We love seeing animals care for each other, and this pit bull probably feels the same way about his found friend!
