A cancer-stricken dog dives into a river with three legs to rescue a baby otter

Ella and Lucy Hammerstrand spent Easter Sunday on the banks of the St. Croix River in Minnesota. They were accompanied by Gus, the beloved Golden Doodle who probably did not know that he would play the protagonist that day.

A six-year-old dog has only three legs after a cut to fight bone cancer. But despite all these health problems, including chemotherapy, Gus suddenly decides to throw himself into the very cold water of the river and swims about 15 meters.

A scene that surprised Ella and Lucy who didn’t even know the dog could swim. And their amazement increased when they saw him come back to shore with something in his mouth: “The first time he went swimming with three legs, he came out of the water with a baby camel in his mouth!” We tried to find his mother, but we couldn’t. ‘

So they wrapped the puppy in a blanket and rushed to the Minnesota Wildlife Rehabilitation Center (WRC) in Roseville. “She was really nice. Her eyes didn’t open yet … you could only see her little nails and her short tail. She almost looked like she had curled up like a little ball,” Ella said.

WRC staff estimates the puppy is about a week old, less likely to swim alone. Otters usually stay with their mother for the first year of their lives and so the center will take care of them.

“I think Gus knew he was in pain and something was wrong … then he got to eat a lot of good things as a reward,” Ella said proudly.
