De Soto Rural Fire District personnel performed an unusual kind of rescue Sept. 10, digging out a dog trapped under her family’s house in the 300 block of Lembeck Lake Road south of De Soto, Chief Tom Fitzgerald said.
The dog, Sasha, is fine, he said.
“It’s a Yorkie who chased a lizard under a concrete porch and couldn’t get out on her own,” Fitzgerald said. “We dug her out. It took about an hour.”
The house and the dog belong to Robert and Georgia DeClue, the district reported.
“Sasha is safe and sound with Mom and Dad,” Fitzgerald said.
