Real Lassie! The moment Lottie the Cockapoo warns her owner and the French Bulldog rescues Harley after the five-year-old dog nearly drowns in the family’s hot tub
- A young pup had a real Lassie moment after her companion fell into a bubble bath
- Cockapoo Lottie panicked when Bulldog Harley started wrestling in the water
- The 13 week old puppy quickly ran to the door and barked until the owner arrived
A puppy copied the heroism of the fictional collie Lassie after she raised the alarm with its owner when her companion fell and nearly drowned in the family’s hot tub.
Five-year-old French Bulldog Harley was lounging on the hot tub lid when Lottie, the energetic Cockapoo, 13 weeks old, began to play and jostle.
The weight of both puppies bouncing around on one side of the hot tub will cause the lid, which was not closed properly, to fall into the water.
Harley is sent into the warm water with a tail over his head, unable to get out.
Lottie (Caucasian Cockapoo) and Harley (French Bulldog) are back on solid ground and are best friends after the traumatic hot tub incident in which Harley nearly drowned
After Lottie barked loudly at the back door, owner Eva Davidson, 13, ran to the hot tub when she realized Harley was in danger

Fortunately, Lottie immediately notices that she is in trouble, frantically running back and forth looking for a way to help.
She soon realizes there’s no way she can drag Harley out of the water, so she runs to the back door and starts barking for help.
After hearing Lottie from the inside, owner Eva Davidson, 13, runs into the yard and sees Harley on the verge of drowning.
She quickly runs to him and scoops him out of the water, ultimately saving his life.
Eva told her father Stephen Davidson, 54, about the incident, who then checked his security camera which captured the entire ordeal.
Eva’s Dad Stephen Said French Bulldogs Are ‘Trash Treading Water’ Because They Have Very Dense Bones And Heavy Heads
Stephen, from Ballynahinch, Northern Ireland, said: ‘When I heard that Harley had fallen in the bath, I knew my camera would have picked him up.
“We’ve reviewed the footage and Lottie’s reaction is unbelievable.
‘She sees that he is in trouble and deliberately sounds the alarm.
“French Bulldogs have very dense bones and heavy heads, so they are useless when treading water.
“When Harley fell, I can imagine how panicked he was, and if it hadn’t been for Lottie, he would surely have died.”
