Dog thrown into dam by owners is rescued by firefighters and gets a new home – Rescue Pets

It really breaks my heart to see that some people are really heartless and they can do anything to hurt the animals. But there are some people who are very kind and they can go to any extent to save the animal. One dog which was abandoned by the owners got trapped in a dam.

Grace was trapped in a dam after being thrown in by her former owners, scared and in danger. The dog was found in the Lake Wister Dam in LeFlore County, as he was standing on a concrete flat that was surrounded by rushing water and he was in danger of being swept up by the current.


Madison Renee one of the onlookers said that when they got there, there was no way to get down to save the dog. They all stood around and watched her trying to adjust to the current. It even seemed that the dog was thrown there as there was no other way by which the dog would have landed there.

“ When we got there, there sounded to be no way to get down to her,” Madison said. “ We all stood around and watched her pass to acclimate in the current hoping she wouldn’t be swept under.”

Thankfully soon the help came, and members of the Wister Fire Department came to rescue the dog. The dam was temporarily shut and they came in the boat and were able to reach the dog with a rope. According to Aaron Capell, a volunteer firefighter, the dog was scared when they came but soon warmed up to them and he even talked to her and patted her.

Volunteer firefighter Aaron Capell says the canine was “ spooked” and “ skittish” when they arrived, but soon warmed up to them “ I talked to her and ultimately, she let me gentle her,” he said.

After the life-saving deliverance, the canine, now named Grace, was taken to the Poteau Valley Humane Society. Luckily, after the rescue when her story went viral, she got a new house. James and Paula Watson from Charleston, Arkansas, saw the story on TV and decided to adopt Grace.


After visiting Grace at Poteau Valley Humane Society, they knew their love was for real and espoused her for good.

“ There’s nothing like being hugged by a big canine,” Paul said. However, also you’ll know what I mean, “ If you ’ve ever been hugged by a big canine.”
