Heroic Police Officer Dives Into Canal And Saves Dog From Drowning

When police officers begin their shift, they never know what sort of calls will come in from day to day.

For example, officers in Phoenix, Arizona recently received an emergency call about a drowning dog in distress.

Phoenix Police rushed to the scene and found a dog struggling to stay afloat in a deep canal.

“There’s no routine call in police work,” the @PhoenixPolice shared on Twitter along with the video rescue.

A police officer can be seen jumping in to pull the dog to safety. Since the pooch was a larger size, the nearby Glendale Fire Department got involved to pull the pooch up to safety.

Once they calmed him down and led him to their nearby fire station, the very good boy ate some food, drank water, and got some love from the firefighters.

After he recovered, police officers transported the pup to the Homeless Animal Rescue Team (HART).
