BEND, Ore. (AP) — Authorities say a golden retriever named Lucy was rescued from Little Deschutes River on Friday by a Deschutes County deputy and a bystander.

The 5-year-old dog was spotted south of Sunriver near exhaustion and nearly drowning, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office posted on Facebook. The deputy and bystander were able to pull her from the icy river.

She was examined by a veterinarian and reunited with her owners. It’s unclear how she wound up in the river.
