This is the moment an exhausted Labrador dog is rescued from a canal where it jumped to escape heat and then could not get out.

The dog was rescued from a canal in Phoenix, capital of the state of Arizona, located in the US, on 28th April.

When it arrives to the officers one of them tries to catch it with a net.

Since that does not work out they grab it by the collar and pull it up.

One of the policemen says: “Good boy.”

The Labrador was successfully rescued and taken care of.

Police said that the dog jumped to cool off from the hot weather.

It then could not find a way back out.

This situation of dogs getting stuck in the canals is very common.

On the official post from the Phoenix police department, Facebook user Lisa Godeman said: “Too many are falling in! Something needs to change!”

She added “Better fencing or something! Thank you for helping”.
