An Ohio family was outside in their backyard enjoying themselves when their dog was looking over at something and whining. They heard an noise from across the creek in the woods. Then they saw something: a large black dog. The woman said that they were going to swim over to the dog, but they didn’t know how deep the water was and if the dog was going to respond well to them. The family called all over to get help for the dog while the dog stayed in the brush pacing. The family kept watch over the dog and made sure he was still alive.
After five days, help finally arrived. Authorities from the Toledo Humane Society were able to traverse the creek to reach the hungry, dehydrated dog which is believed to be a stray.
The dog is being treated by a vet and will then be put up to adoption. The family that helped rescue him is thinking about adopting him.
