BRISTOL, Pa. (CBS) — Police in Bristol Township, Bucks County, are trying to figure out how a dog became leashed to a rock in the Neshaminy Creek over the weekend, left unattended as the creek was rising.

The mixed black Labrador was found by a couple walking along the creek, on Inner Road.   When the two approached, they noticed a leash tied to a rock and saw the tide was coming in.

Nicki Thompson, a Humane Society police officer at the Bucks County SPCA, says the dog was rescued and has been named “Our Miss Brooke.”

“Brooke is suffering from some eye infections, ear infections, and also a little bit of skin infection,” Thompson tells KYW Newsradio.  “She’s a little underweight, so we’re working to put some weight on her.  She also has a very large tumor on one of her back paws, so we’re working to get her stable enough to have that tumor removed.”

Any donations made for Brooke’s care will be used for medical treatment.  Any remaining funds will go toward other special-needs animals at the Bucks SPCA.

Anyone with information on the dog’s owner is urged to call police.
