Firefighter Rescues Dog From Freezing Water And May Rescue Him Again

Jesse McCullough, firefighter at Prince George Fire Department (PGFD), came to the rescue of a 10-year-old golden retriever stranded in freezing water. No one knows how the dog got there, but thank goodness PGFD arrived in time.

The dog was found next to a creek, where McCullough used a ladder to rescue him. When the dog saw his rescuer, he wagged his tail in delight. The sweet dog was happy that someone came to his rescue. The dog was not able to climb the ladder, so he was carried to safety. McCullough brought the dog back to the station to warm up and to get food. Once the dog ate, he fell fast asleep.

Animal control came out and found a microchip in the dog, but it was not registered to an owner. This is an example of why it is important to register your name with your dog’s microchip. The sweet golden retriever stole the heart of his rescuer. McCullough plans on adopting the dog if the owners do not come forward.

Watch the rescue recorded by PGFD.
