PRINEVILLE, OR -- Crook County deputies responded to a call at Ochoco Reservoir that was not what it first appeared. Witnesses called 911 just before 1 p.m. Thursday, reporting a man in the water yelling for help. But, by the time the Sheriff's Office arrived, 22-year-old Jeremy Vargo was safely on shore. 

 

He told deputies his neighbor’s dog had escaped the Lake Shore RV Park and was struggling in the water. Vargo swam out, but wasn’t able to get to him before needing to turn back. 
 
Using binoculars, deputies spotted the brown lab in the middle of the reservoir. Detective Mitch Madden went to the boat launch and asked a citizen to help with their private boat.  With the help of deputies on land guiding them in, the two were able to reach the 100 lb. dog and bring him to shore – tired but unhurt.
