Officer Jumps Into The Water To Save A Drowning Dog

Published: July 18, 2022 at 03:17 PM Author: Penny Eims



Florida – On July 3, a quick-thinking police officer jumped into the water to save a drowning dog who had fallen into the water in the Intracoastal waterway. The Lighthouse Point Police Department said that Officer Bob Stebbins responded to a Police Assist call after a frantic caller phoned in for help.

The caller said that her dog fell into the water, and when Officer Stebbins arrived, he learned that the pooch had been treading water for 25 minutes. It was apparent that the dog was struggling to keep its head above water and he could see that the leash was tangled in nearby dock pilings.

Knowing that time was of the essence, Officer Stebbins shed his duty gear and jumped in to save the dog. The department wrote:

Officer Stebbins swam across the dark water, untangled the dogs leash, and delivered the dog to the shoreline safely.

The dog’s owner was “overjoyed” to be reunited with her rescued pup. Great job Officer Stebbins!

The officer is indeed a hero for saving that poor dog….but why didn’t the owner save her own dog?!? I’m truly flummoxed.

That was my thought too. And how did the dog end up in the water?
