A Florida sheriff’s deputy rescued a dog so cute he couldn’t help but adopt him.
St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Deputy Troy Glover was on a routine assignment and heard a dog whimpering. When he investigated, this is what he found.
Glover called his colleague James Gettings to help. Gettings used a catch pole to pull the golden retriever mix out from a collapsed septic drain that had formed a deep puddle.
“He had been balancing on his back legs to keep his head above the water,” Gettings told . “I don’t know how long he had been in there. His hind legs weren’t working once we pulled him out.”
