This is the heartbreaking moment when a stray dog begs animal rescuers to rescue their pup after it falls into a Russian tarpaulin.
The desperate mother whined and ran in a circle around two Russians until they followed her and her showed them her puppy who was stuck in a tar pit.
It had been pulled from the pit by a road worker named Yegor – apparently after two days – but could barely move in the village of Namtsy, 55 miles north of Yakutsk.

The road worker jumped in after the puppy’s mother pleaded with him to save her baby.
Egor called for animal rescuers, and the heartbreaking video showed the mother begging her for help.
The men – the brothers Vasily and Boris Krymkow – set about cleaning the bitch, closely watched by the worried mother.
First they used diesel to remove the sticky tar, then they washed the little dog in the water of a nearby river.

After the worst of the tar was removed, the bitch examined her little one and the dogs were then taken over by a charity foundation.
“The puppy was soaked in tar, like a living mummy with the bitumen covering every piece of his hair to the skin,” said Vasily.
“It couldn’t even cry and moaned gently from time to time. We spent about three hours washing it off, first with diesel, then in the river with soap.

“We gave her milk and took her to the vet, where she was given an injection of vitamins. She seems to be fine, she seems to have some Laika blood in her. ‘
The brothers try to make sure that the mother’s other pups are all looked after and hope finding a good home for the tarry pup.
“We returned to the tar pit to cover it and make sure there was no more danger.”
