    Default US firemen rescue dog from California river

    A US firefighter who was lowered by helicopter into a swollen river to rescue a dog managed to hang on safely - even after the frightened canine bit him.
    At least 50 firefighters had responded to reports that the German shepherd was stuck in the Los Angeles river.
    Officials said the male dog, nicknamed Vernon after the Californian town where he was found, was fine.

    This wasnt too far from me. It was quite the story. His orginal owners picked him up yesterday, his real name is Spikey. He's doing very well.
