The dog had evidently just emerged from the nearby river, but clearly some coldhearted person had intended him to remain trapped below the water's surface forever. Around the dog's neck was a makeshift anchor.
"Apparently, somebody put a heavy metal item on his neck and dropped him in the river to drown," Petraškienė's daughter, Andra, told The Dodo. "The dog was scared and shaking from cold as well."
Petraškienė recorded the moment she came to the poor pup's rescue.
