A 13-year-old dog has two new heroes after Sergeant Mike Martin and Officer Mike Kushner of the Willistown Township Police in Pennsylvania saved the life of the dog last week after he became stuck in a mud slick - so messy and gooey the dog could barely move reported the police department's Facebook page.
The dog, named Pluto had been missing for three days. On May 9, the officers were called to assist in the rescue where Pluto was found firmly stuck in the mud near a stream.
The officers were able to gently pull Pluto to safety. He was immediately transported to the Sugartown Veterinary Hospital where he is reported to be doing fine.
Pluto's family were just exuberant after finding their beloved dog stating,
"we feel very fortunate indeed that you are there and always quick to respond, skilled and compassionate. Score one for Sergeant Martin and Officer Kushner, two of our “good guys."
We all agree.
