Dog thrown into dam by owners gets rescued by firefighters and finds a new home

It’s heartbreaking to see how some dogs are treated by cruel owners, but thankfully, there are people who are willing to rescue them and give them a better life.

That was the story of one dog who became trapped in a dam after his owners abandoned him, until firefighters came to his rescue — and thankfully, this dog now has a new family.

According to 5 News Online, the white dog was standing on a concrete flat in the Lake Wister Dam in LeFlore County, surrounded by rushing water and in danger of being swept away by the current.

Madison Renee and her family were among the bystanders who arrived on the scene, concerned for the dog but unable to assist her. “There seemed to be no way down to her when we got there,” Madison told 5 News. “We all stood around watching her try to adjust to the current in the hopes of not being swept away.”

They also realized that the poor dog was most likely thrown over on purpose because that was the only way the dog could have gotten into that position.

But, thankfully, assistance arrived quickly. Wister Fire Department members volunteered to assist in the rescue. They arrived by boat after requesting the dam be temporarily turned off and were able to reach the dog with a rope.

The dog was “scared” and “skittish” when they arrived, but soon warmed up to them, according to volunteer firefighter Aaron Capell: “I talked to her and eventually, she let me pet her,” he told 5 News.

The dog, now named Grace, was taken to the Poteau Valley Humane Society after the life-saving rescue.

Fortunately, the dog’s story had a happy ending. According to a 5 News update, James and Paula Watson of Charleston, Arkansas, saw the story on TV and “fell in love” with Grace right away.

One of the couple’s rescue dogs had died just three weeks prior, and when they saw the abandoned dog on TV, they knew it was meant to be and that they could provide Grace with a loving home.

They knew their love for Grace was genuine after visiting her at the Poteau Valley Humane Society, and they adopted her permanently.

Paula told 5 News, “There’s nothing like being hugged by a big dog.” “If you’ve ever been hugged by a big dog, you’ll understand what I’m talking about.”

“When that’s the right dog, there’s a look you get.” She’s also got that look.”

Grace has found a wonderful new home, and we are so happy for her. After everything she’s been through, she deserves it.

Thank you to everyone who assisted in the rescue of this lovely dog! Please spread the word about this wonderful news!
