Late on the evening of April 21, a 6-month-old puppy named Sasha and her owners were out for a walk on the Weston-super-Mare beach in England when the pup startled.
Being an old English bulldog, the puppy wasn’t huge but she wasn’t tiny either — and in the scramble, she managed to get away from her owners, leash still attached, and took off.
The area is known for its mudflats, which can be very dangerous, especially at night. Instead of chasing after the frightened dog, reinforcements were called in — which proved to be a very smart move.
The Weston-Super-Mare Coastguard Rescue Team posted about the incident and its happy conclusion the next day.
“At 22:48 on Wednesday we were alerted to a dog lost in the mud near the Grand Pier,” the rescue posted
