RI Man Saves Drowning Dog
January 20, 2012
EastBayRI.com: They say dogs are man’s best friend. Last Tuesday night, the opposite held true.
Marley, a 6-year-old, 65-pound pit bull from Newport, was visiting his owner’s sister on Ellis Avenue when he decided to go for a swim. It was about 5:30 p.m., and apparently he took off out of his ‘aunt’s’ yard, ran across Market Street and jumped into Belcher Cove, behind Malik’s Liquors, before anyone could stop him.
