Our dogs are affectionate, intelligent, and devoted to us. They may also teach us to obey our commands which we find helpful. However, they are not perfect, and we are all aware of that. It said there are no perfect pets, but it is reasonable to think that a dog is the closest thing to one.
One of the many faults of our dogs is their tendency to flee when startled. It results in the disappearance of doggos and, in some instances, their deaths. A German shepherd and Labrador mix discovered floating in the icy waters of Jamaica Bay in New York City nearly met this fate.
This dog is Georgia, and this story is about her rescue. Luckily a couple, Scott and Carol Denaro saw her and were on their way to their eye doctor appointment. They saw a weird figure treading in the icy bay, and upon closer inspection, they realized it was a dog. The Denaros failed in their attempts to coax Georgia to approach them.
However, their calls to the canine got the attention of an NYPD Harbor Unit officer in the area. When the officer understood what was happening, he called for help to assist in retrieving the dog from the icy water.
Help arrived, and they were able to rescue Georgia. Then they cleaned Georgia off before covering her with a large blanket.
After scanning her for a microchip, the NYPD was able to contact Jason, the dog’s owner. The fur parent stated that Georgia ran away because she was spooked by something. He searched everywhere for her but never imagined his dog would reach the bay.
Jason was very grateful to all the police officers who rescued her and the Denaros who spotted her. Who knows what might have happened to the dog if it weren’t for everyone’s combined efforts?
