Injured Mastiff Gets Rescued From L.A. River and Reunited With Her Family


When you’re vacationing in Los Angeles, you hope to have a celebrity sighting. For one tourist, she didn’t see a celebrity but it was someone just as important – an injured Mastiff in desperate need of help. Hope for Paws received a call about a Mastiff who had found herself in the L.A. river near Santa Monica, and they immediately sprang into action.

When they arrived on the scene, the team found this rescue would be no easy feat as the pup was located right near the river’s outlet – which leads to the ocean. The team created a human barrier and was able to contain the dog just seconds before she was about to go over the wall into the ocean. Bravely, the team lassoed the terrified dog to ensure she was out of harm’s way.
