The Nelson Police Department is grateful for the “valiant efforts” of two Nelson youths who were able to help a distressed dog.

On Saturday evening, two young males ages 12 and 13 came across a dog that was limping in and out of traffic on the Observatory Overpass. They were able to get control of the dog and walked it to the police department to get help.

Police were able to contact the very relieved owner who said the dog had escaped from the yard. The dog was not injured during its time on the road, rather limping due to arthritis.
