A stray dog has been saved by a group of kind-hearted passers-by after it got stuck in a frozen lake in China.

Footage shows the pooch being pulled out of the ice-cold water by one of the men who formed a human chain by standing in a line while holding onto each other for support.

After being brought to safety, the dog refused to walk away from its saviours and was later adopted by an onlooker, reported Chinese media.

The animal was spotted by a group of pedestrians on Monday when it was standing on the surface of a frozen lake in sub-zero temperatures in Chongqing, south-western China.

Mr Liu, who captured some of the footage, told reporters: ‘The ice couldn’t hold its weight and [the dog] fell into the water.’

As the passers-by rushed to the stray’s rescue, three of the men decided to form a human chain to free the animal.

In the video, they can be seen standing side by side while holding each other’s hands as they approached the trapped animal.

One of them slowly walked down the snow-covered slope before squatting down to reach for the stray with its body soaked in the freezing water.

After much efforts, he was able to grab the dog’s neck before lifting it out of the lake while his partners pulled him backwards.a

The man at the front is said to be a security guard working at a local resort and he was supported by his manager standing behind.

Mr Liu added that the animal had refused to leave after being rescued, seemingly appreciative of what the pedestrians had done.

He told the press that he had adopted the dog and been looking after it.

The heart-warming footage quickly became trending on China’s TikTok-like Douyin today, with commenters lauding the pedestrians for their kindness.

One user praised: ‘This is amazing. Doggie, you are very lucky that you met this group of Good Samaritans!’

Another one wrote: ‘Thank you for your kind hearts. You saved a dog’s life.’

Last month, a pet Husky was rescued by Chinese firefighters in Beijing after it got stuck in the middle of a half-frozen lake at a park.

The canine accidentally fell into the freezing water while being walked by its pet owner when the temperature dropped to minus eight degrees Celsius (17.6 degrees Fahrenheit) in the Chinese capital.

Footage shows the helpless animal clinging onto the ice edge before being pulled to safety by officers with a rope attached to a life buoy.
