Dog was stuck in a river for days. The moment rescuer is finally able to free it—I’m emotional

Poor Dog was trapped in river for days, now watch when rescuer is finally able to free it.... I'm in tears!

A dog was rescued in Ulysses, Kentucky, on April 25, after becoming trapped on a river bank for a number of days, according to a man who helped rescue the animal.

Footage of the rescue was posted to Facebook by Darrell Perkins, who told Storyful that the dog, named Ginger, had been missing for a number of days before she was heard her howling from a nearby river.

We can see that the dog looked sad and out of energy, but the rescuer did a good job of letting the pup know that everything was okay now.


Ginger couldn’t walk up the hill, and it was clear that she could easily have drowned.

But, thanks to the incredible efforts of the humans who found her, she’s now recovering at a local animal hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
