While loading up his van for work, Darrell Perkins overheard what appeared to be a distraught puppy howling. Perkins decided to investigate the sound coming from the river bank since he was aware that there had been a report of a lost dog in the vicinity.
Perkins peered over the bank and saw Ginger stuck in the mud, resting her head on the bank of the river. He immediately called the dog’s owner, Brenda Osborne, a neighbor, and Johnny Rickman the dog warden for Lawrence County.
A 12-year-old dog named Ginger had been reported missing earlier in the week.
The rescue was captured on video as Rickman lowered himself with a harness down the muddy bank. Meanwhile, Ginger looked up with big eyes anticipating her rescue. Once Rickman picked up Ginger the other people helped pull them to safety.
