A firefighter on the Westside of Jacksonville became a hero after he saved a blind Chihuahua from drowning in a retention pond. The incident took place behind the Hospitality Inn on 103rd Street and Interstate 295. Thanks to the quick thinking of firefighter engineer Ryan Bayliss, the dog, who was struggling to swim, was rescued and eventually adopted by a loving family.

A Heartwarming Rescue Story

Bayliss explained that he spotted the struggling pup in the pond. He realized he had to act fast to save her. He and his team tried calling the dog, but she was swimming in the opposite direction. Seeing that the dog was drowning, they put their ladder into the pond and Bayliss jumped in.

The rescue was a challenge. The firefighter had to act quickly to get to the dog before it was too late. The drowning Chihuahua tried to bite him, but he didn’t give up. Eventually, he was able to pull her out to safety. He handed the dog over to Capt. Tammy Reyes, along with her husband, decided to adopt the blind Chihuahua and named her Foxy.
