BENTON CITY, Wash. — Deputies are trying to reunite a lost puppy with its family after they saved it from an irrigation pond in Benton County on Tuesday.

According to a social media post from the Benton County Sheriff’s Office, the dog — a small, black dog with bright eyes and a long white streak on its chest — was trapped in an irrigation pond at Weber Canyon off McBee Rd.

They found that the friendly dog had a collar, but wasn’t wearing any tags that would help identify its owner. Therefore, the dog’s name or home is unclear at this time.
