Police Officer Jumps in Lake to Save Pup
A dog is saved after his family's car ends up submerged

Last month Debra Titus accidentally drove her pickup truck into a lake near a retirement community in Carver, Mass. She was able to escape with one of her dogs, Stitch, but her Chihuahua, Moochie, was trapped in the submerged vehicle.

When the police arrived on the scene, Officer David Harriman knew there was only one thing to do when he learned Moochie was still under water. The police officer removed his holster and dove right into the murky water.

The conditions were so bad that Officer Harriman could barely see his hands in front of his face. But he was able to open the car door and save the poor pup. Moochie wasn't moving at first, but quickly regained consciousness after they got to dry land.

Officer Harriman didn't think twice about diving into the water, saying he was inspired by the love he has for his own 8-month old English Bulldog, Jax, who he considers to be a member of the family. Officer Harriman's colleagues describe him as an avid dog lover and we can certainly see why!
