CLINTON, Ind. (AP) - A western Indiana man is being called a hero for jumping into a stream and rescuing a dog that someone tried to kill.
 
Troy Jones tells WTHI-TV he heard something whining this week down by a creek and looked over to find a young Labrador mix with cinder blocks tied to its head and its legs tied together. A nearby note said someone wanted the dog to die.
 
Jones took the dog named Serendipity home and cleaned her up.
 
Dareth Stonebraker of the Parke-Vermillion Humane Shelter in Clinton says Serendipity is in good shape and doesn't have any physical wounds. 
 
Serendipity is now up for adoption.
