Five firefighters from the Green River Fire Department responded to a call at Electrocutioner Falls on Tuesday to help a female Rottweiler dog that was unable to get out of the water.
“Upon arrival the dog was pretty well spent and did not have much longer before she would have been overcome by exhaustion and hypothermia,” one firefighter said.
The department said Lt. Brandon Brady crawled out to the dog, grabbed the dog from the water, and then was pulled to shore by other firefighters.
Once they were able to safely get the dog out of the water she was transported to a vet by Green River Animal Control.
The incident was reported by operators at the power plant intake facility.
Other local agencies involved with this call were; Castle Rock Ambulance, Green River Police Department, Green River Animal Control, and Green River Fire Department.
According to Asst. Chief Larry Erdmann, the dog has been picked up by her owners and is doing very well.
