In the crisp air of a February day, Don strolled with his dogs. On their homeward journey, a stranger approached:
“Have you happened upon a gray dog in this vicinity?” he inquired. Don responded, “Regrettably, no, but I’m willing to assist in your search.”
For nearly an hour, they combed the area fruitlessly. Yet, as they traversed a bridge, Don’s dogs abruptly halted. Scanning the surroundings, Don discerned nothing amiss until he heard faint sounds emanating from below the bridge. Acting swiftly, the man dashed towards the river, abandoning his keys and phone on the ground, and entered the icy waters.
“I had no alternative. I was aware of the river’s nature and took no chances, as the dog was in a shallower part,” explained Mr. Chatten.
The trickiest part involved safely extracting the dog from the water. Thankfully, the rescue mission concluded triumphantly—the Jackson Terrier was saved and reunited with its owner. Following a thorough examination by specialists, everything appeared to be in order.
