On Christmas Eve, a citizen called 911 after hearing a dog cry and bark outside. According to Orange County Animal Services, the citizen was unable to locate the animal in the neighboring yard due to a high fence. Orange County Fire Rescue located the dog in a dirty swimming pool at an abandoned home. The canine, now known as Earl, was unable to exit the pool without the help of the fire rescue team. Earl is now in the care of Orange County Animal Services. He's a great dog who enjoys eating treats and playing fetch. Earl is housebroken and walks well on a leash. If you're interested in adopting Earl, visit Orange County Animal Services at 2769 Conroy Road (ocnetpets.com).
