According to lifeguards, the dog’s owner could not be located and may have left it behind.

Daniel E. DeSousa, deputy director of the San Diego Department of Animal Services said the puppy was under their care, but that because the head trauma was serious, it had to be transferred to an emergency hospital for observation.

DeSousa said the dog’s treatment will be covered by the Department’s Spirit Fund.
