Brigantine Police say it was a team effort that saved a large dog that had fallen into the water and was clinging onto a bulkhead.

The 200+ pound animal was saved, thanks to Brigantine Police and a member of Sea Tow.

Police say Officer Sweet responded to a report of the lost dog Monday, and was able to locate the dog, clinging to the bulkhead. With the assistance of a member of Sea Tow, the dog was able to be pulled from the cold water.
