  • I would absolutely stop and rescue the dog. If I called 911, I would stay to ensure they came before the dog drowned completly! If my boss couldn't understand something like that, they aren't a person I want to work for anyway!

  • I'm not about to go get myself bitten by a strange dog. I'd call animal control & keep going.

  • I'd get fired. I couldn't just walk away and let the dog drown.

  • I would stop and help the dog. Most all of my pets are rescues and I am a foster home for a rescue too-so in other words I spend all of my free time saving animals anyway. I can't imagine walking away from any living thing that needs help. Knowing me, not only would I get the dog out, I would take it home, get him to a vet and then find him a new loving home. So again...I could NEVER imagine not helping.

  • I'd save it and take it to work to be checked out by one of the vets that I work with
