Little dachshund rescued from edge of Sunshine Skyway Bridge

A little dachshund was rescued from the edge of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge  in Pinellas County on Sunday. The dog was spotted walking south in the northbound lane before jumping on the bridge’s incline and walking almost halfway up.

According to WflaNews, passing motorist, Emily Serra, stopped trying to rescue the pooch. Emily had been a passenger in the backseat of the car with her family heading to Sarasota and noticed traffic had been tied up.

“My immediate reaction, I wanted to jump out of the car and go help, but I know that there were already a bunch of people over there helping him. I knew adding more people to the situation would kind of freak him out,” Serra said. “Whoever saved this little guy definitely deserves recognition. It was maybe a 4 inch railing up there and he was walking across. I am glad he did not fall down. We were pretty worried about him.”

No one knows how the dog even wound up on the dangerous ledge; it is not known if the dog was lost or had been abandoned. The dog was safely rescued with the help of a Good Samaritan and Florida Highway Patrol officers.

This was one lucky pooch.
