Dog rescued from harbor needs a home
Jenny Campbell was was taking photos by the Ann Street wharf in Baltimore Wednesday when she heard a splash.
A dog had fallen, or jumped, into the water, and, as is the case along most of the harbor, there was no easy way out.
Campbell and a man who heard the splash from his docked sailboat tried to coax the dog close enough that they might reach in and pull her out, but when she did get close enough, she nipped at their outreached hands.
Campbell called 911.”There’s an animal in the water and she’s fading fast,” she told the operator, who patched Campbell through to the police department’s marine division.
Meanwhile, others had gathered to try and help the dog, both on the land, and in the water. One couple on a boat pulled alongside the dog, but she nipped at them as well.
Shortly after that, a patrolman pulled up, the police helicopter was overhead, and a police boat arrived and spotted the dog, pulling alongside of her and reeling her in.
The dog was taken to Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter (BARCS), where, if unclaimed, she will be put up for adoption.
“She needs a home,” Campbell added, “This is a beautiful animal that needs a fantastic, loving person to care for her.”
