Rob Lowe’s dog rescue in the ocean has gone from TV role to real life
A Rob Lowe’s dog rescue in the ocean from his real-world televised life.
While the former 1980s Hollywood Brat Pack member currently plays a first responder in the drama Fox 9-1-1: Lone star, he probably didn’t expect to have to use some of these skills in everyday life.
Lowe’s German Shorthaired Pointer Oscar jumped into the Pacific Ocean while chasing a bird on Saturday, June 26, which led the actor on a relatively long journey outward to save him.
This news comes from Rob Lowe’s Instagram post.
Rob Lowe’s dog rescue came via an ocean adventure this weekend.
“Playing a first responder has come in handy today,” captioned Lowe, noting that the photo didn’t show much. “A quarter mile of ocean paddling to save my dog.”
“He’s a GSP and they will clearly do anything to get a bird. Ouch! “
Yikes is right, and we are truly grateful that Oscar was saved to safety.
German short-haired pointers are generally hunting dogs, specifically used to point out flocks of birds, scaring them from their hiding places in the air.
Rob Lowe adopted two new puppies in the fall of 2019, following the death of his family’s longtime pet.
Lowe is currently playing on 9-1-1: The Lone Star as a leader Owen Strand, chief of a fire company in Austin. He is also one of the executive producers of the series, which is currently in its second season.
He is also well known for his television roles as White House Communications Director Sam Seaborn on West wing and perky fitness-crazed listener Chris Traeger on Parks and Recreation, while movie roles include Soda Curtis in The foreigners (based on the eponymous young adult classic by SE Hinton), Billy in St Elmo’s fire, and the eponymous minor hockey player from Young blood.
