A dog named Zoose lived up to his mighty name when he helped save his owner, who was buried under a heavy mountain of snow.
Steve Bayers, his son Ben and Ben's friend Adam were building a snow fort when the roof suddenly caved in, pinning Steve's arms and legs underneath him.
Steve said the two boys were just feet away from him, screaming in the pitch black, but he couldn't move under the weight of the snow to help them. He told the two 13-year-old boys not to panic and to keep breathing.
Steve said it seemed impossible to get out until his five-year-old golden retriever, Zoose, began digging him out of the snow.
Thanks to the digging efforts of Zoose, Steve managed to get free and call for help, finally getting the attention of a neighbor and three friends, who shoveled through the pile of snow to find the two boys.
While Steve is thankful that Zoose rescued him, he also wants to warn others about the dangers of snow forts and tunnels.
He recommends that anyone building a fort make it without a roof on top. (Huffington Post)
