Abandoned pup becomes Newburgh FD's newest firedog
A pit bull mix abandoned in Newburgh has become the fire department's newest firedog.
In October, firefighters found the puppy they named 'Nick' tied to a fire hydrant.
Nick joins a long line of Newburgh firedogs that dates back to the late-1800s.
Members told News 12 that they gladly pitch in to pay for his care.
Since it's only been a few months, Nick doesn't go on calls just yet. However, firefighters say he's already one of the gang.
