WATERFORD — A Racine County Sheriff’s deputy responded to the Fox River Tuesday morning for a call of a dog in the water.

“He was getting too tired swimming and couldn’t paddle against the tide,” said Deanna Morgan, a librarian at Waterford Public Library, 101 N. River St.

A library patron reported seeing the dog outside the library in the river at about 11:50 a.m., and then emergency responders quickly arrived.

The dog was pulled out of the water just before noon with a dog pole, a long metal pipe with a retractable cable that could be looped around the dog, said Sgt. David Coughlin of the Racine County Sheriff’s Office.
