Over the weekend police were called in to rescue an injured dog who got stuck in a marsh off north Long Beach, according to a Facebook post by the Nassau County Police Department. NCPD Marine Bureau and Fourth Precinct officers were able to get to the dog and take him safely to Town of Hempstead Animal Control employees, who scanned the pup for a microchip and were able to contact the owner.


On her Facebook page, Nassau County Executive Laura Curran praised the officers for rescuing the dog, which she identified as a boxer.


“Another incredible animal rescue by the Nassau County Police Department,” she wrote. “Thanks to their quick rescue, the dog is making a full recovery!”
