Watch Lucky the Dog’s Wild Rescue From the L.A. River

Days after his dramatic rescue, LA Animal Services still doesn’t know much about Lucky. They know he’s a Welsh Corgi mix about six or seven years old. They know he once had a good home, given his nice manners. They also know he earned his name, having survived a wild trip bobbing down a rain-swollen river before rescuers got to him.

On Friday, a woman at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank spotted his head bobbing above the suddenly rushing Los Angeles River, which was overflowing due to a thunderstorm. She called 911, while Lucky headed downriver, according to NBC Los Angeles. He traveled three miles at speeds up to 20 mph, making it to Glendale before firefighters got to him.
