Jessie saves Chucky in near drowning incident, a story of dog friendship
Byron added that the heroic pooch was a troubled rescue dog adopted by the couple four years ago. The couple was her third adopted family after her previous fosters returned her to the shelter. He said that previous owners complained Jessie was difficult with other animals but "she got along with our other two dogs from the word go."
He added: "I'm really proud of her, considering she is the youngest. Our dogs know how to swim but they always swim with us and not when we are not with them." To prevent similar incidents from happening in the future, the couple is now hiring workers to install a cover for their pool.
