A golden retriever named Yago is a very good dog who is known for his heart of gold. He is a sweet, gentle dog that is a beloved member of his family. While he is a loving and sweet family pet, it turns out that Yago the dog is also a hero. One of Yago’s favorite things to do is lay outside in the backyard of his family’s home in Argentina. He enjoys warming himself in the morning sun and relaxing. As he was relaxing one morning, something caught his attention. It was the sound of a creature that seemed to be in distress. Yago’s owner, a woman named Mariana Corti and her partner, were also alarmed by the sound. They had been sleeping and the commotion woke the pair up from their slumber.
When Mariana woke up, she said she heard a fluttering sound coming from the patio in their backyard. When she looked out the window to see what was happening, she realized the sound was a pigeon that was in the pool and it appeared to be fighting for its life. As she watched, she saw her beloved dog Yago jump into action. Rather than allow the bird to drown, it seems Yago knew he needed to help the poor creature. Mariana watched from her window and grabbed her phone to capture the entire thing on video. In the video, Yago can be seen peering into the pool with his front paws on the edge of the pool, watching the bird. The bird is obviously struggling to stay afloat, with its wings out.
Then, Yago runs to the opposite end of the pool as he sees the bird get closer to the other side. He again jumps up on the side of the pool to watch the bird. Then, the bird gets close enough to him for Yago to take action. He gently grabs the bird’s wing in his mouth and pulls it to safety from the pool. The bird is later seen resting on the ground and eventually flies away to safety. His family is so proud of him!
