Personnel made their way across the runway to the embankment to get a visual and then down to the dog who appeared friendly but frightened.

North Myrtle Beach Rescue Squad responded with their boat along the ICW to assist and coordinate getting the dog’s owner to the area to help get the dog safely away from the banks and back to dry land.
