Rocky the Rescue Lab

Rock is a rescue lab who was shot and left for dead outside of a shelter, but after being rescued by his owner, Floyd, Rocky returned the favor. The lab led Floyd to safety after he began to experience heart problems during a hike in California. Every time that Floyd collapsed and lost consciousness because of the heart issues, Rocky would bend down and lick Floyd’s hand until he woke up. He continued doing this until Floyd and him got back to their car safely, allowing Floyd to get immediate help.
