Lucky dog rescued from Roza Dam

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA--Yakima Sheriff's deputies made an unusual rescue Sunday morning.  Somehow a dog got stuck in the Roza Dam.

As deputies were trying to decide how to save the dog, he took matters into his own paws and jumped in to the canal.

Deputies managed to get a rope around him and pull him to safety.

Normally, YSO can't do anything for dogs who fall into the canal, but this one got lucky.

The dog didn't have a collar.  Right now, he's being taken care of by a Yakima Police Department Dispatcher.
