A dog is safe and back on dry land thanks to the Cape Coral police and fire departments.
Cape Coral police found a dog treading water near the 1000 block of Dolphin drive on Sunday and quickly jumped into action.
Police believe the dog had been treading water for as long as several hours before they arrived.
Police officers and firefighters used roped and pols with looped wire on the ends to help get a hold of the dog and lift it back onto land.
Cape police say the dog was released into the care of Lee County Domestic animal services.
