The Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office deployed its Marine Unit One over the Independence Day weekend to rescue a 10-year-old Siberian Husky named Caiden, NBC New York reported Wednesday.
In a social media post on Tuesday, the agency detailed the incident:
S/Os Michael Forgione and Kasey Collins rescued Caiden, a 10 year old Siberian Husky who was in distress after he swam approximately 1.5 miles into the bay off Union Beach, separating from his owner. Once the Sheriff’s Officers located Caiden, they brought him on board, navigating shallow waters to reunite him with his grateful owner.
The pup did not appear to be hurt but was, understandably, tired after his outing.
Photos showed the officers caring for the wet but grateful dog aboard the boat following his rescue:
