So Meriweather reached out to the Wasatch County Sheriff’s office to help with the rescue.The dramatic rescue video captures Sadie struggling to get out of the water, until an air boat pulls up alongside, and a rescue worker pulls her out safely.“I was just so glad she was home, I kept checking on her every five minutes to make sure she was still there, I was just glad to have her back.”
