In Deux-Sèvres, 2 teams of firefighters intervened to save a dog that had gotten stuck in a pond and could no longer get out. The animal was taken to a veterinary clinic and its rescuers are trying to find its family. A call has been made to this effect on social networks.
To whom does the dog saved in the mud, in a Deux-Sévrien commune during the Easter weekend, belong? No one knows at the moment, not even the firefighters who rescued this dog. They are also launching a call for witnesses in order to find its owners in the Facebook post describing this rescue.
A post shared on Saturday April 16 by the Thouet firefighters and which details the intervention. It was carried out by 2 teams, those of the Airvault Rescue Center and the Departmental Fire and Rescue Service of Parthenay.
Alerted around 9 a.m. that morning, they quickly arrived on site, at a place called Jaunay in Gourgé, where they discovered the dog in question in great distress. Described as being “of the Golden Retriever type”, he was trapped in the muddy part of a pond and had no possibility of returning to solid ground.
The operation lasted 2 hours
The firefighters thus had to carry out a complex and rather long operation. The rescue indeed lasted 2 hours according to the Facebook post. Their efforts were not in vain, as they finally managed to extract the dog from the slime, before drying and cleaning it.
The animal was exhausted and visibly in shock. He was transported to the Victor Hugo veterinary clinic in Thouars, about thirty kilometers away.
