Colin Mitchell was on his delivery route when he heard sounds coming from the rear of a property, Newsweek reported Thursday.
When he walked around to see what was going on, he spotted two dogs paddling around in the home’s above-ground pool.
He tried knocking at the door to alert their family about what was happening, but no one answered. It was then that Mitchell knew he could not leave without doing something to help the dogs.
When he went back around to the pool, he saw they were trapped in the water underneath a solar cover. However, it did not take long for him to rescue the dogs, later identified as Remy and Groot, preventing anything terrible from happening.
A photo showed Mitchell kneeling beside one of the dogs, and social media users expressed their joy over the story:
“What a wonderful thing! Kindness come [sic] in all shapes! Happy to see things like this. Only take a moment to be helpful,” one person commented.
The family has since told Mitchell how grateful they were and explained their pets might have been trapped for about three more hours had he not taken action.
Following the incident, the dogs were reportedly doing fine.
