ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Animal Welfare officers made a heroic rescue after they came across a four-legged victim.

An elderly dog was found stuck deep in the muddy reeds of the bosque on Tuesday. Officer Rael and Officer Fennell were able to free the pooch and get him safely back to their van.

He was scanned for a microchip and has since been reunited with his owners. Animal Welfare says the concerned owners also took the dog to the ER for possible medical attention.

Albuquerque Animal Welfare reminds everyone to microchip their pets.
