I witnessed the rescue of the dog who I believe was named Scruffy, not Buttons! I was on Commercial Street as the firemen lowered the ladder to the dog standing patiently in shallow water (thankfully it was low tide). The dog's owner said the pup was excitedly greeting another dog when it slipped over the edge, and the leash helped break the dog's fall. Scruffy seemed very happy to be rescued.
