Hikers Save Dog Swept Away by Creek

Two hikers came to the rescue of a black Labrador Retriever who got stuck under a log jam in Saint Vrain Creek in Colorado on Monday. Stanley was apparently cooling off in the stream when he was swept away by the current and his worried owner, Jason, couldn’t find him despite a desperate search. After an hour, he left the scene to call the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office for help when, luckily, hikers Andy and Jennifer heard Stanley “whimpering and barking for help, he was pinned under a log jam with only his head above the water,” the sheriff’s office wrote in a Facebook post. “Jennifer and Andy pulled Stanley to safety and he was reunited with a very grateful Jason.” — Read it at People Pets
