PALM COAST, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35)
Flagler County deputies are looking for the owner of a dog they said swam across the Intracoastal Waterway on Saturday.
Deputies said they were called around 4:22 p.m., Saturday, after someone saw the dog lying on rocks under a seawall near a home under construction in the area of the Palm Coast Marina.
Deputies were unable to locate the caller, but when they arrived, Devyn Bremmer, Palm Coast, who was out fishing, gave them a ride to the Palm Coast Marina, near Yacht Harbor Drive to find the dog, officials said.
When deputies got there, they said they found the brown pitbull mix lying on the rocks and seemed to be in distress.
Deputies said the dog was being splashed by waves as boaters traveled across the Intracoastal.
Palm Coast Animal Control officers were able to rescue the pup while a deputy stayed with him to keep him calm. Officials said the dog had some injuries on his rear legs they believe came from the rocks.
The dog was taken to the Flagler Human Society and they believe he is someone's pet.
If anyone knows who the dog belongs to, they are asked to call the Flagler County Humane Society at 386-445-1814.
