In Romanian, that sentence would be ”Un câine este/e pe pod”. When ”este” is at the beginning of a sentence, it is often equivalent to ”there is” in English.

haha, you got me here! when I saw the sentence, the little funny guy from Gulliver's Travels (the original version) immediately came to my mind: ”there is a giant on the beach”, ”there is a giant on the beach”, etc. (do you remember him?) then guess what, I wrote the translation ”there is a dog on the beach”.. so stupid.. haha
