This dog may be his owner’s life saving best friend, but unfortunately he’s not very gentle.

 An online video shows a dog attempting to save a man even though he was swimming safely in shallow water.

In the video, entitled “Hero Dog” by YouTube user kingpic, the large canine is seen lying on the ground near the lake keeping a close eye on his adult male owner swimming in the water nearby.

But after he dunks his head below the surface for a few seconds, his dog quickly perks up and immediately jumps into the water — landing on the man’s head.

The man quickly stands up and clutches his forehead, but his furry friend insists on finishing the rescue.
