"Storm just plunged into the water and started swimming out to the fawn, grabbed it by the neck, and started swimming to shore", the dog's owner, Mark Freeley, told CBS New York.

"Storm is trying to save this baby deer", Freeley can be heard saying.

When he reached land, Freeley said Storm followed the fawn and laid next to it, nudging it. "He had swam over his head", the rescue group said on Facebook, "tucked the deer under his arm, looped a dog lead over her head and slowly swam back to shore".

She was put in a quiet room to rest and will receive fluids, feedings and Strong Island Animal Rescue League said when she is old enough she will be released back into the wild. He knew what Storm went through and felt his pain.

Unfortunately, the fawn had to be rescued a second time.

"Erica carried it over a mile to her truck and together they transported it to the Star Foundation for treatment and rehab". "I was exhausted at the point my knee blew out, and I collapsed on the beach", he said. Although covered in ticks and suffering from an eye injury, the fawn is expected to make a full recovery, RNN reports.

The fawn was eventually taken to an area animal rescue, which will care for it until it's back on its feet.
