In an amazing moment captured on camera, a dog named Matyas attempted to rescue a little girl who he thought was in danger of drowning. The incident occurred at a beach in Gouville-sur-Mer, France, where the child was happily playing in the water. Matyas, however, became concerned when a small wave washed over her face and decided to take action. He gently grabbed onto her shirt and pulled her towards the shore, ensuring she was safe before letting go. Despite the fact that the child wasn’t actually in danger, Matyas’ protective instincts are heartwarming to see.

Matyas was determined to ensure the safety of the girl, not stopping until she was back on the beach. Social media users were quick to praise the dog for his intelligence and loyalty, with one person even calling him the “perfect babysitter.” However, not everyone was impressed, with one comment suggesting that it may not be enjoyable to bring Matyas along to the beach if he’s constantly pulling you out of the water. There is some speculation online about what breed of dog Matyas might be, with possibilities including a Sarplaninac, Leonberger, Keeshond, or Newfoundland.
