DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - A puppy named Misha is lucky an alert Dubuque couple noticed the dog struggling amid debris in the Mississippi River.

The Telegraph Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1nxGiWa ) Kathy and Kevin Vaughn were boating south of Dubuque, near Massey Marina, when Kathy noted there was a lot of floating debris.

As she gazed over the items, she noticed a black Labrador retriever having difficulty swimming through the debris.

She pulled the pup to safety into the boat, and when the couple arrived back at the marina they found the dog’s owners had alerted the restaurant staff about the missing dog.

They had left a missing dog poster stating the dog had wandered off while they camped at Nine Mile Island.

Dog owners Kristy and Josh Eichenberger, of Waterloo, returned Sunday to retrieve Misha.
