Dog rescued from bridge, search for owner continues

NEW CASTLE, Del. (WPVI) -- A family out for a bike ride likely saved the life of a dog that was trapped on a railroad bridge.

Now officials need the public's help to get that pup back home.

The blond beagle was rescued Sunday from the bridge over the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal.

When rescuers got to her, she was shaking in fear and was stuck between the bridge and a concrete support brace.

Luckily, she was not injured.

She's now safe and sound at the Brandywine Valley SPCA in New Castle.

She will be held for at least three days for her owner to claim her before she will be made available for adoption.
