Dog stuck on island in Clackamas River rescued

Posted: Updated:
OREGON CITY, OR (KPTV) -

A dog stranded on an island in the Clackamas River wasn't very excited to see a rescue crew at first.

Deputies tried to reach the dog near South Palmer Road in Oregon City at 1 p.m. Monday, but the 30-pound chow mix struggled against them and swam across the river.

The deputies didn't give up and eventually corralled the dog and placed it in a sheriff's office boat.

The dog did calm down and was taken in by Clackamas County Animal Services. The dog did not have a collar or name tag.

If you know who owns the dog, contact authorities at 503-722-6519.
