TWO DOGS RESCUED FROM SACO

CONWAY AREA FIREFIGHTERS, POLICE AND AMBULANCE PERSONNEL TEAMED UP THIS WEEKEND TO SUCCESSFULLY RESCUE TWO DOGS THAT GOT LOOSE FROM A YARD ON EAST CONWAY ROAD AND ENDED UP IN THE ICY SACO RIVER.

THE CONWAY POLICE LOG INDICATES A CALL CAME IN SHORTLY BEFORE 12:30 P.M. SATURDAY REPORTING A DOG IN THE RIVER ON THE EAST CONWAY ROAD SIDE, WITH ITS HEAD ABOVE WATER BUT NOT FLOATING DOWNSTREAM BECAUSE OF THE ICE.

REDSTONE FIRE CHIEF ROBERT GARLAND RESPONDED AND FOUND THERE WERE ACTUALLY TWO DOGS – AN ADULT GOLDEN RETRIEVER AND A ST. BERNARD PUPPY – THAT WERE NOT TOO FAR OUT IN THE RIVER BUT SEPARATED FROM RESCUERS BY A VERY STEEP EMBANKMENT.

NORTH CONWAY FIRE RESCUE AND NORTH CONWAY AMBULANCE WERE CALLED TO ASSIST.

GARLAND REPORTED BOTH DOGS WERE OUT OF THE WATER AND GETTING CARE ABOUT AN HOUR LATER – AND THEY WERE THEN RETURNED TO THEIR OWNERS.

CONWAY ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER BETTY HOLMES DETERMINED THE DOGS HAD GOTTEN OUT OF THEIR YARD BECAUSE A TREE HAD BROKEN THEIR INVISIBLE FENCE.
