During a flood this poor dog was tied to a porch, abandoned by its owners. The dog was already neck deep in the rising water when rescue came.
It would have died if not for the efforts of Sherriff Troy E. Nehls. The sheriff was patrolling the flooded streets, trying to assess the massive damage caused by the flooding in Fort Bend Country, Texas.
"The only thing we could see was her head above the water. I had a news crew with me filming the flooding, and I said, 'We have to get that dog out,'" said Nehls.
After successfully untying the dog from the porch the sheriff and the news crew decided to take the dog to the Houston Humane Society. After it was concluded that the dog was in good health the Nehls family adopted the abandoned dog.
