Couple Who Rescued Dog From Lake Name It After Ellen DeGeneres’ ‘Finding Nemo’ Character

No good deed goes unrewarded for Krystal Moya and Bryant Fritz.

The couple caught Ellen DeGeneres’ attention after they saved a dog from a terrible fate. The dog was locked in a crate and plunged in a freezing lake. Moya and Fritz appeared on Wednesday’s episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to share their story.

Fritz said he immediately jumped into the lake and rescued the dog. They took the dog to the veterinarian fearing it would not survive the injuries.

The couple instantly knew they wanted to adopt the dog and subsequently named her Dory. Yes, Dory, after DeGeneres’ character from “Finding Nemo”.

In honour of the couple’s heroic deed, DeGeneres presented them with the entire ED Ellen DeGeneres pet collection as a gift to Dory. The host also gave them an early engagement present: a $25,000 cheque.

Congratulations to Moya and Fritz on their engagement and new doggo.
