Swift Water Rescue team saves dog

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA RIVER, Wash. -- Kittitas Swift Water Rescue team helped save a stranded dog stuck on an island in the Yakima River for over a week.

The Sheriff's Office released video to KNDO of the dog after the rescue.

Crews used a "live-capture-cage" to bring the female lab-hound mix to safety.

The dog was taken to the Ellensburg Animal Shelter, where they hope to put her up for adoption.

A spokesperson with the shelter said the dog has been vaccinated, and went out on her first walk Thursday afternoon.
