The adorable dog Akela lately had some difficulties.
The boxer-mastiff mix almost got hit by a car while she was out and about.
Akela managed a precarious escape, but as she ran from the road, she became caught in the neighboring pond.
Poor Akela attempted to swim to shore but was unable in leaving the murky waters.
Akela had no choice but to continue floating in the sea and wait for help to arrive.
Thankfully, help did come quickly.
Akela had been witnessed by a nearby neighbor narrowly avoiding being struck by the car before being stranded in the pond.
As soon as the concerned citizen contacted for assistance, the Washington Township Police Department showed up.
Akela was straining to keep her head above water and anxiously treading water in the murky pond when the police arrived.
She dived below the water’s surface a few times before rising to the surface.
John Kuligowski, one of the cops, was able to borrow a kayak and utilized it to start the rеscuе operation.
After attempting and failing to get Akela into the kayak, Kuligowski paddled closer to her and eventually decided to focus on getting her unstuck and guiding her back to land.
Akela brightened up as her feet were back on the earth.
She didn’t appear to be hurt and appeared glad to be back on land at last.
The police are now assisting Akela in finding her family and ensuring that the adorable dog is secure and content.
