A video of a Chilean police officer rescuing a dog that became tangled in a tarp has gone viral.
The footage of the Sunday rescue at a home in San Felipe, about 56 miles (90 kilometers) northwest of Santiago, shows Second Lieutenant Giovanni Domke climbing over a fence and approaching the stricken pooch.
Domke carefully pulled the tarp from the brown canine's hind legs and as soon as the pet is free, it immediately shows its gratitude by jumping up on the officer and licking his face.
According to local media, neighbors called the authorities when they heard the dog whining.
