Riverview, Florida -- A man was able to save a dog that was struggling to keep her head above water while swimming in the Alafia River.  Now that man is trying to track the dog's owners down.

The rescue happened Thursday afternoon on a stretch of the Alafia River in Riverview, near I-75.

The animal seems to be an older, female dog wearing a Harley Davidson collar. She might even be blind and deaf.

Brian Peterson was on his jet ski when a woman on a dock pointed the dog out to him

He said the dog was really struggling, so he decided to jump in.

If this is your dog, send us an email and we'll be sure to get in touch with Brian.
