During the catastrophic flooding that swamped the Brazos River in Texas, countless families were forced to flee their homes before they were killed by the torrential waters.
Friends and families, hand-in-hand, walked, swam and boated away from the danger that was engulfing their towns. But one family member was left behind.
A sad-eyed pup was left chained to a house, abandoned and forgotten.
As flood waters rose, the dog was left struggling to keep her head up high enough to breathe.
It seemed the poor dog was doomed–until a Houston news crew showed up. They came to film a piece on the natural disaster, but stayed to rescue the nearly drowned canine. Members of the news crew immediately jumped into the dangerous current, untied the dog and brought her to safety in their boat.
The pup was soaked and shivering from the cold.
The crew brought her to the Houston Humane Society to ensure she would be OK after the traumatic event.
According to Texas Hill Country, this precious pup has even found her forever home.
“Archer” was adopted by Sheriff Troy E. Nehls of Fort Bend County and is now part of a large and loving family.
Thanks to this daring and selfless news crew, this little doggie will have a second chance at a good life.
