Witnessed cheered and congratulated the heroes as the dog was rescued. Firefighters planned to take the dog to a nearby animal shelter, but one of the rescue witnesses volunteered to adopt the pet. Firefighters felt the willing adoption candidate met the requirements to give this dog a good home.

The dog was named Rescate (Spanish for rescue) and he now has a good loving home.
