There is no doubt that dogs love to play and plunge into ponds or lakes.
Kensey, a Golden Retriever, is no different.
The 12-year-old pooch went for too much adventure that neighbors had to call firefighters to search for her.
It is not clear whether her journey was intentional or not but she ended up falling into a canal after she was let out to do her morning routines.
After three hours, her owners started to panic as there were no signs of the elderly dog. Fortunately, a neighbor had noticed Kensey and contacted the fire department, which rescued the poor pooch from the water.
Cape Coral Fire Department shared on Facebook: “This morning Engine 9 helped reunite Kensey, a 12 year old golden retriever, with her worried owners.
“She had been missing for three hours after falling in a canal when she was let outside this morning. Her owners had been out on the canal in kayaks looking for her and were relieved to find her safely on land with the firefighters.”
Mechelle Poling posted on Facebook: “What a fantastic story, my neighbors saw a dog swimming in our backyard canal. The dog looked tired and listless.
“They called the Cape Coral Fire department which rescued her. I was going to keep her in my lanai until Lee County Animal Control arrived. I was walking back to open the lanai door when I saw two people in Kaiaks looking for a dog.”
“Kensey had been missing since 5:30 this morning. She’s 12 years old and needless to say it was next to a miracle she managed not to drown.
“What a great happy ending for all. Thanks to our neighbors Sam and Barb, and our great Cape Coral Fire department – the true heroes for Kensey and her owners! I videoed Kensey’s rescue and her being reunited with her owners.”
We are so glad that Kensey has been rescued. Hopefully, she will always out for supervised walks.
