Mole, a mixed German Shepherd from California, became a hero on Monday, when he pulled a classic “Lassie” and rescued a dehydrated homeless man from a mountain. Ramon Llamas and his dog, were walking along Mount Rubidoux in Riverside, when Mole began tugging at his owner’s leg. “He kept tugging at my pant and whining, pulling me,” Llamas said.

Mole led Llamas to the prostrate body of a 44-year-old homeless man name Paul, trapped under rocks and severely dehydrated. Llamas and several other hikers comforted the man and provided him with water until rescuers could arrive.

Rescue workers estimated that Paul may have been trapped there as long as 8 days, flickering in and out of consciousness. “He’d be dead if it wasn’t for that dog,” one paramedic told Fox News.
