Last week, this dog nearly lost her life - but in some ways, she actually did. Never again will she be alone, without a caring friend close by.
The dog was discovered by Sheriff Troy E. Nehls while he was out on an airboat assessing the damage caused by recent flooding in Fort Bend Country, Texas. Up to her neck in water on the front porch of a flooded home, she was clearly on the verge of drowning with no help in sight.
"The only thing we could see was her head above the water," Nehls told The Dodo. "I had a news crew with me filming the flooding, and I said, 'We have to get that dog out.'"
But it soon became heartbreakingly clear why the dog hadn't simply swum away.
