A senior Labrador Retriever mix is alive thanks to a Good Samaritan and two Arizona Humane Society's Emergency Animal Medical Techninicians (EAMTs).

The Lab, who only has one eye, fell into a canal in Phoenix last Friday morning. A passer-by heard a dog barking from the canal but could not see him and called for help.

When the EAMTs arrived, they spotted the dog in the water. The dog swam toward Andy Gallo, one of the rescuers, who used a large pole with a rope on its end to pull the canine to safety.

"EAMT Andy Gallo immediately called out to the dog who let out a yowl and swam over. Weak and tired, the old guy who only has one eye, was shivering from the ordeal," said HS spokesperson Bretta Nelson.

The dog wasn't microchipped and was found without identification or a collar. Currently, there is no update as whether the dog's owners were located after 72 hours wait period or if the rescued dog will soon be up for adoption through the Arizona Humane Society.

    It said they were hoping someone came forward in the next 3 days and was stamped on the 14th. I wonder if anyone knows his fate. poor soul.
