The Austin Fire Department has been unfortunately very busy over the last few days, coming to the aid of those affected by massive flooding in the area.

With over 15 inches of rain falling on Central Texas, entire neighborhoods have been evacuated and rescue workers have been on the scene around the clock.

But it's not just those with two legs who need assistance, as photographer Preston Culver captured a heartwarming moment between firefighters Matt Harvey and Michael Cooper yesterday.

Check out their admirable effort below in pulling a canine to safety:
