A dog was rescued Sunday thanks to the quick action of law enforcement and emergency responders.
The Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post that “Josh,” a Yorkshire Terrier, fell into a storm sewer drain near Wal-Mart. The dog’s owner, Anthony Montez of Bullhead City, Arizona, was unable to get him out and called 911.
A sheriff’s deputy was in the area with an animal catch pole and assisted the Spirit Lake Police Department and the Spirit Lake Fire Department. The dog was safely retrieved and was returned to his grateful owner.
