On August 24, deputies in Douglas County, Georgia, saved two exhausted dogs who were stuck in a swimming pool. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office shared video of the rescue effort with Facebook followers on September 3, along with an explanation of what happened.
The law enforcement agency writes:
Sometimes to protect and serve requires going the extra mile. That’s just what Deputies Michael Aziz and Elias Johnson did on August 24th. They responded to a dog case at approximately 7:40 p.m. where they found 2 dogs treading water in a pool. The dogs could not get out and looked exhausted.
The deputies did not think the exhausted dogs would be able to make it long enough for animal control officers to arrive, so they took matters into their own hands.
The agency explains how the deputies improvised:
Dep. Aziz used a blanket to pull the first dog out of the pool and saved the second dog by pulling it out by the collar. Thanks to Deputies Aziz and Johnson these beautiful Huskies will be just fine.
It is unclear if the dogs that fell into the pool live at the residence, or if they wandered in and got stuck. But the dogs are safe thanks to the quick thinking of Deputies Aziz and Johnson.
