Abused dog dumped in canal rescued by firefighter

An abused dog left for dead in a canal has been taken in by a firefighter after his colleagues saved it from drowning. Kindhearted Lloyd Brown, 58, is nursing the poorly pup back to health in between battling blazes. His colleagues at Miami-Dade Fire Rescue recovered the exhausted six-year-old Rottweiler on Sunday after it was spotted struggling to stay afloat. Three firefighters were filmed lifting the skeletal dog out of the muddy water, wrapping it in a yellow blanket before placing him onto a stretcher.
