A Dog Chained To His Flooded Home’s Front Porch Is Rescued.

An NBC news crew helped rescue a dog left chained to a front porch in Houston, as floodwaters surged to record levels during the recent floods in the area.

The dog was barely able to keep his head above water when a news crew from the NBC affiliate KPRC saw him from an airboat manned by two volunteers. The group was surveying a flooded neighborhood in Fort Bend County.

KPRC reporter Phil Archer and volunteer Jeff Shimek waded into the flood water to rescue the dog and managed to lift him into their boat.
