FORT BEND COUNTY, Tex. – As water levels rose to dangerously high levels this week in Texas, a dog chained to a fence could to nothing but hold its head barely above the water.

A news crew with KPRC in Houston spotted the dog from a distance. The dog was tied up, and the water had risen past its neck.

The news crew and a group of volunteers they were with were able to un-tether the dog an load it into their boat, lifting it to safety.

The dog was turned over to the Houston Humane Society. Rescuers said she will be fed, vaccinated and put up for adoption.
