BRANCH POND, ELLSWORTH – An Ellsworth dog is safe thanks to some quick action.
The owner of the yorkie said he put his dog back in his truck because another dog was nearby. When the owner walked away, another person at Branch Pond in Ellsworth noticed the truck starting to roll.
The truck went down a hill and into the water, with the dog still inside. A family friend swam to the fully submerged truck and rescued the dog.
The truck was about 75 feet from shore in about 10 feet of water. The dog, owner and hero are all safe and sound.
