Oregon firefighters helped retrieve a stranded dog from an Albany Lebanon canal. According to the reports on the official Facebook account of the Lebanon fire district, authorities immediately made it to the scene after being informed of the incident.

Two passers-by, Lucas Kledzinski and Riley Swanson were the ones to alert authorities of the situation. They were walking by the canal when they noticed a dog on piling support of a railroad trestle stuck in a trench.

When firefighters got to the scene, they realized that officials would have to enter the water before rescuing the dog. So a rescue team was dispatched so that firefighters could get the necessary gears before entering the water.

When officials finally removed the cold, wet but friendly dog from the canal with the aid of a webbing strap, the dog was carried to a waiting Lebanon police patrol car where its body was inspected for any microchip.

The dog had nothing on it and later got transferred to the River's Edge Pet Medical Center. The dog had an Injured left leg, and it appeared to be a black mixed-breed weighing approximately 40- 45 pounds.

The English police recently rescued a stolen French bulldog, Maggie while she was in labor.

The Lebanon fire district thanked the citizens who informed authorities instead of attempting to rescue the animal themselves. Officials noted that they did the right thing as they might have endangered their lives if they had tried to remove the dog.

The social media update revealed some vital information about the waters in the surrounding environment. The rivers and canals could sometimes appear slow-moving and shallow, but they are usually deep and filled with debris.

The information was shared on social media so the dog's owner could claim it if they ever came across the message. Thankfully, another report from officials showed that the dog has been reunited with its owners.

In another heroic report, the English police recently rescued a stolen French bulldog, Maggie while she was in labor. Maggie was taken from an address in Devon, England, while she was still pregnant.

According to the information provided to the police, it was revealed that the bulldog was being kept at a building in Partington, England. Officials acted on the tip and went to inspect the building.

Maggie was indeed found at the building giving birth to eight puppies. All the dogs were removed from the house, and a 33-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman were arrested as suspected in the incident.
