KOIN, Oregon — A dog stuck and injured after being rescued by a Lebanese fire department crew on Sunday night is safe, but looking for an owner.

According to fire authorities, passers-by first noticed a dog stuck on a stakeout stanchion on a railroad pedestal between Main Street and Park Street on the Albany-Lebanon Canal. They contacted police and fire authorities at around 8:15 pm.

At the scene, firefighters determined that they needed to enter the water to rescue a dog that appeared to have an injured forefoot.

Lieutenant Michael Maynard and engineer Corey Nipstein were properly equipped and crossed the canal to reach the dog. The dog was cold and wet, but friendly, fire officials said.

Two firefighters fixed the dog, so the dog was never free when they crossed the canal again. They carried the dog to the shore and to the waiting Lebanese police police car.

Police scanned the dog’s microchip but could not find it.

Officers took the dog to the River’s Edge Pet Medical Center for evaluation.

Dogs have black fur and are a mixed breed. It weighs between 40 and 45 pounds. Please contact the Lebanese police for more information on the implementation.
