Once Sgt. Brian Parkton with the OCSO's Traffic and Marine Unit got closer, he saw white fur.

The sheriff's office posted the rescue caught on camera on Youtube. 

They said the dog had fallen off a pontoon boat and once they owners noticed she was missing, they went to look for her.

The dog was reunited with her owners, all thanks to Sgt. Parkton.
