Fox 13 News says Mark Freeley was walking along a Long Island beach when his dog, Storm, suddenly burst into action.

"Storm laid down next to it and was nudging it and pulling it but it looked pretty exhausted", Freeley said.

That's when he said Storm spotted the deer, jumped into the water, grabbed the fawn by the neck and pulled it to shore.

An East Setauket pup is being hailed as a hero for pulling a fawn flailing in Port Jefferson Harbor back to shore.

But the ordeal wasn't over yet. That began rescue round two.

Once on land, the fawn ran off but soon collapsed, Freeley said.

After the fawn was safely onshore, Storm stood watch of the deer until a representative from Strong Island Animal Rescue and a veterinarian could arrive. He knew what Storm went through and felt his pain.

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

He credited the hard part to his partner Erica Kutzing.

"I don't think I could've done it without the help of my partner". After Frankie recouped for a few mintues, he walked 1 1/4 miles back to the animal rescue vehicle.

The fawn, which was covered in ticks and suffered an eye injury, should make a full recovery.

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