Police Officers And Residents Rescue Helpless Dog Stuck In Water

Jim Passmore was enjoying his time with the dogs when he saw something unusual in the water. He first thought it was a huge beaver, but a closer look revealed something else. It was a dog with brown fur.

The canine was stuck and fighting to get out of the muddy water. Passmore realized the situation was tough and called the police right away. After a while, police officers and some residents reached the spot and started their rescue act.

The man tried to pull the dog up, but he failed as the canine was a bit heavy. To make it worse, the dog wasn’t comfortable when strangers touched him and tried to attack everyone.

Therefore, a shirt was draped around the head to stop it from biting. Then a rope was tied around the dog, and the police gave it a pull. However, the dog just couldn’t be budged.

The officer then pulled with more force and finally dragged the dog out of the water safely. It was later learned that the dog was hit by a car, which sent him rolling down.

The dog was wrapped in towels to keep him dry and warm before taking him to the vet. The overweight dog, which they named Teddy, was a Collie Mix of around 8 years of age, the vet presumed.

As Teddy had bitten one of the rescuers during the rescue, he had to be quarantined for a short time for fear of him contracting rabies.

Unfortunately, nobody came in to claim Teddy. Therefore, the Oklahoma Alliance for Animals (OAA), a non-profit organization, stepped in to sponsor his X-rays, vet bills, and boarding.

“He has been given anti inflammatory and pain meds which finally kicked in and has started showing signs of being less stressed…,” OAA wrote.

“We will also be looking for this sweet boy a home as soon as he is ready,” OAA added.

Luckily, they did finally find him a home as Teddy was adopted by the manager of Alta Vista Animal Hospital.
