Texas fire department adopts stranded dog

Austin, TX - A photo of two firefighters rescuing a dog from a flooded street in Austin, TX has gone viral.

The dog, named Panda, was trapped in water that was 12 feet deep when firefighters found her. 

Panda was pulled to safety. The Austin Fire Department took her in, and then took her to the Austin Humane Society so she could be reunited with her owners, thanks to a microchip. 

Two days after the department posted it to their Facebook page, nearly 4,000 people had liked it. 

Halloween storms hit Central Texas with more than 14 inches of rain this week.
