Officer uses hotdog bits to rescue dog from roofJuly 16, 2013 @ 2:07 am
VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - An animal control officer equipped with hotdog bits has managed to rescue a 15-pound dog that somehow found itself stuck on the roof of a Vancouver, Wash., area house.
Homeowner Barry Klettke says he was backing out of his driveway Monday morning with his own dog, Bella, in the passenger seat when Bella growled.
He tells The Columbian ( http://is.gd/i5kSLt) he looked up to see what she saw and there was the dog on his roof. He called 911.
Clark County animal control officer Patrick Higbie says he's responded to calls involving birds stuck on roofs but never a dog. The Chihuahua mix was taken to the Humane Society for Southwest Washington.
