Ayer por la tarde este peludo cayó in the Acequia Gorda del Genil, in the zona de Virgen Blanca. Se estaba ahogando y un vecino se arrojó para rescatarlo. If no hubiera sido por su actuación, habría perecido. Así trasladamos nuestras felicitaciones a su salvador. pic.twitter.com/c6kigDbvBx

Exhausted, but safe and sound
The pooch wore a red collar, but no identification system by tattoo or microchip. The font of Grenade has therefore been unable to find the trace of its owner to date. Law enforcement also cannot determine if the canine got lost or was loosely abandoned in a dangerous place.
