Arens followed the sound through the dark to an icy pond, where he discovered a dog that had fallen through the pond's ice and was trapped in frigid water. In response, Arens stripped down to boxers and went out onto the ice to rescue the canine. The UPS carrier ended up in the chilly pond water, swimming with the dog until they both could climb back on land.

John Cassabria was delivering packages for Amazon in Woburn, Massachusetts, in August 2020 when he noticed a dog struggling to stay afloat in the deep end of a backyard pool. Realizing the pooch was in trouble, Cassabria immediately jumped into the pool and rescued the drowning pet. After saving the canine, named Luka, Cassabria learned that Luka was 14 years old and had weak hind legs, so he wouldn't have lasted long in the pool on his own.
