Dramatic Dog Rescue from Blackheath Pond

Last night (Monday 13 July) the Fire Brigade had to be called to rescue a three-legged Staff terrier from the pond in South Row. We just happened to be passing by at around ten past ten and heard this terrible howling.

We don’t know how the dog got in there, but because he has only one back leg he couldn’t get out again, due to the steep concrete side. Last seen, the dog was on a string lead, walking two firemen down to Lee Green fire station while the fire engine followed!

Perhaps someone knows who the dog’s owner is?

At least it wasn’t a three legged ferret

    Lucky indeed! On the grounds that there can’t be too many three-legged Staffs, I reckon this is the same dog I found roaming alone in Greenwich Park at closing time 6 months so so ago. I took him home for the night and next day to the vet. He has a chip and the vet returned him to his owners. I hope they are grateful for the Fire Brigade’s efforts – perhaps they could keep a closer eye on “Lucky” in the future.
