Rescued and hungry! Stranded delta island dog rescued


STOCKTON - A dog reportedly stranded for weeks on a delta island has been rescued.

A terrier mix trapped on an island in Fourteen Mile Slough, next to Stockton, has been given a new lease on life.

Animal lovers have been waiting all week to find out what would happen to the ragged-looking, little dog trapped on the island since at least April when he was first spotted.

The dog would appear on an isolated beach, then disappear back into thick, almost impenetrable brush. Stockton Animal Services began working with San Joaquin Country sheriff's deputies earlier in the week, with a plan to set out traps at high tide, to avoid drowning the dog if he were to be caught.
