From Perciful's Twitter messages:

"A couple men were by the river for the day and one of their dogs (Dozer) saw a splay in the water and jumped in."

"The Pit Bull went down stream about 200 yards when the man lost sight of his dog. The man thought the dog drowned."

"A few minutes later the man saw Dozer on a sand bar. The wet, tired, and cold dog was about ready to jump back into the water..."

Update: 8:09 p.m.

"The man and his friend made a raft out of driftwood and tied the logs together with shoestring so he could cross the river to his dog."

"Once he reached his dog he could not get back over and called 911.
