Dramatic photos and video show two police officers from Pennsylvania rescuing a distressed 13-year-old Australian Shepherd from a deep mud pit on May 9.

Willistown Township Police Department had to use wooden boards to get close to Pluto, whose head was barely visible above the thick muck.

Although Pluto still walks with a limp and his fur remains matted, the vet reassured Shorr that the canine is going to be fine.

Mud can be very dangerous. I saw a special spike shaped hose nozzle on a TV show that dealt with it quite quickly.

Here it is. It has a bunch of holes running down it so it sprays high pressure water in all directions and liquifies the mud so the victim can be pulled out.

"I hope this is noticed by the FR ABUSIVE cop hater gang.

Slight correction to your generalization...I don't "hate" cops per se, I hate cops who ABUSE their authority and hide behind their badges when they've done something egregiously wrong.

Cops should be held just as accountable as any other citizen in similar circumstances, no get out of jail free cards simply because they wear a badge and "were in fear for their life".

I like cops. I really detest bad cops who abuse their authority and continually get away with it.

I’m surprised these cops didn’t just shoot the dog, however, that seems to be their current MO all across the fruited plain.

Nobody is harsher than me when cops get out of line. I noticed.

When articles like this are as common as "cop shoots dog" I will relent from what some call cop bashing.

They’d be as common if someone bothered to post them-——or if the media opted to publicise them.

Yes they are! I have two merles and I would not have any other breed.

Ours is a Split Face Tri color around 7 years old. I had 2 Golden Retrievers before. Hands down the Aussie is better.

“Pup” is a term of endearment for a dog of any age. “Puppy” means a baby dog.

I refer to my 4 dogs as my “pup children”. I have 2 human children but they are grown up and gone. My pup children give me constant love and joy.
