Meet the pet dog who is determined to be of assistance – whether you need it or not.
This family pet had been taught to rescue things from water, but after making light work of a green lilo, the have-a-go-hero takes his rescue role to the next level, dragging out his poor owner who was enjoying a dip!
The young lad is safely 'rescued' from his swim and taken back to dry land in one swift move.

The clip was uploaded to YouTube with the message:
"I'm going to save you whether you need saving or not. This amazing pup learned to rescue things out of the water... and then he got a little carried away."
There's no word on whether the boy braved the water to continue his swim after his 'rescue' – or if his dog let him!
