The woman who saved a dog that had been weighted down and dumped in the River Trent said she believed it was dead until it blinked.
Jane Harper spotted Bella as she walked along the Trent with a friend and three dogs at around 8.45am on Monday.
It was her friend Joanne Bellamy who spotted the dog's head protruding from the water and drew Jane's attention to it.
