CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

An injured 13-year-old dog has been reunited with her owner after getting lost during a storm and being rescued from a muddy creek.

According to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department's Animal Care & Control, officers were called to the 6600 block of Wannamaker Lane in Charlotte morning around 9:13 a.m. on Saturday.

A neighbor spotted the dog in distress and called 911.  

When the Charlotte Fire Department Station 24 and Officer Keisha Martin got to the scene - they found Daisy, a chocolate Labrador Retriever, stuck in the mud in a creek.

They were able to safely rescue Daisy from the creek and took her to Animal Care and Control where she was examined by vet staff. Officers say she was dehydrated and exhausted, but seemed to be in good health.

On Monday, Daisy's owner - Tim Schoenig - was reunited with the rescued pooch.

Officers say Daisy's tail was wagging when she was reunited with Schoenig, who he has owned Daisy since she was 8-weeks-old. 

Schoenig says Daisy apparently followed his roommate's "much younger and more adventurous" dog out of the gate that was accidentally left open sometime on Saturday morning.

Schoenig said he was grateful to all of the people who helped save Daisy.

Daisy left the shelter with a new microchip and Schoenig said he was going to buy her a new collar with an id tag.

    It's certainly not how you want to find out you've inadvertently grilled a bird, seeing his bewildered little face peering out from behind the facade of your pickup truck. But that's what happened to one driver in Bullock County, Alabama, on Wednesday.
