On May 31, operations were underway to rescue people trapped by the rising floodwaters of the Brazos River in Texas. A camera operator captured this footage of a Fort Bend rescue crew saving a dog, chained to the front porch of her home, left behind by the family.
The dog, named Archer, was taken to the Humane Society, which determined that she had been chained to the porch for some time, and declared her abandoned.
But the story doesn’t end there. Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls, one of the rescuers of the two-year-old border collie mix, brought his family with him to the Humane Society to see how Archer was doing. It was love at first sight on all sides.
Here’s Archer, happy to be home with her new family.
