A blind dog in distress was rescued from a lake Thursday in Miami Gardens.
The pooch, which officials think is a Cocker Spaniel, ended up in the water on Northwest 179th Terrace and 54th Avenue around 3 p.m. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue used a small boat to reach the canine on the banks of the lake.
The blind pooch was given oxygen by the crew and kept warm to avoid hypothermia. It appears the dog is in good health.
First responders will hand over the canine to proper authorities as Animal Services tries to locate the owner.
