People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has awarded a dog named Mole with the “Heroic Mutt Award” for saving a California man’s life after he was trapped in a hole for days on Mount Rubidoux in Riverside County.

Ramon Llamas’ rescue dog, Mole, tugged on his owner’s pant leg while they were taking a walk on one of the mountain trails. Mole led him to a hole tucked under some trees where a man named Paul had been trapped for several days.

“For saving Paul’s life, Mole will receive a Heroic Mutt Award from PETA along with a special ‘doggie bag’ full of vegan dog treats, a comfortable new harness, and a fun toy,” reads a press release by PETA, obtained by The Washington Times.

“Dogs are more than our best friends — as Mole demonstrated, they’re our family members, our protectors, and our heroes,” said PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA hopes that Mole’s tenacity and care will inspire anyone looking for a dog to head to an animal shelter — they’re full of lovable, wonderful mutts just like Mole.”
