LONG BEACH (CNS) - Long Beach lifeguards rescued a small white dog and now the search is on for the canine's owner.
The rescue began about 6 p.m. Saturday when the lifeguards answered a call about a dog running loose in the Junipero beach parking lot, according to a Long Beach Fire Department social media post.
"LifeGuard 7 put on his Wetsuit, grabbed his rescue board and bouy, and headed out to rescue the small white lap dog. The little dog made it out to the swim line, and with Rescue Boat 2's help, LG7 could get the dog on the rescue board and bring it safely to shore," the post read.
The dog's owner was not found nearby so Animal Care Services was called to take the dog and can be reached at 562-570-7387.
