Firemen are famous for getting cats out of trees. Now the Huntington Beach Police Department is getting dogs out of swimming pools. On Tuesday around 9 a.m. a neighbor in the 1700 block of Shipley Street called the HBPD regarding the sound of “an animal in distress.”
The officers pulled the puppy from the water and told the homeowner what had happened.
Pool-owners are reminded that children and puppies are not safe when a pool is not secured by a fence or sturdy pool cover. Police caution against leaving a child or a dog unsupervised around a pool to avoid a tragedy.
