Once nearby people approached the waters to see why there was so much noise, they spotted the dog, which was rescued by fire personnel and reunited with its owner. The owner would state later he would never have seen the dog wasn’t it for the dolphins.The dog had fallen into a canal from a concrete wall, and it was impossible for it to climb back up.
It had been in the cold water for an estimated 15 hours before it was rescued, and must have been suffering from exhaustion and hypothermia.
