This poor dog was tied to a pole with her leash and the waters were rising above her paws. It looked like she was about to be a victim of Hurricane Harvey.

Ruaridh Connellan was a photographer assigned to take pictures during the storm when he saw the dog. He crossed the flood water and untied her. She wagged her tail happily as she was brought to safe grounds.
This dog is now called Lucky. Poor Lucky was left tied to a pole by her owners outside of the trailer where they lived. They lived just outside of the town of Victoria.
Her owners and all of the neighbors took off before the flooding started.
Before: This scared dog was discovered by Ruaraidh Connellan who was a photographer for the DailyMail.com. He was able to cross the flood to untie this dog and save her.

She was so happy that she led to photographer to help her friends. They saved another dog that was a pitbull mix, two cats, and a little pony.

Connellan could not stop worrying about the dog.
Lucky seemed to be doing well. He was happy to be greeted by her. Lucky and the other animals were scared but for the time being they are safe.
Friends: Lucky was with a pitbull mix, two cats ,and a pony. Local animal control has been contacted and these animals are considered abandoned. They are safe but will need someone to take care of them soon.
