Emergency crews in Butler County worked together Friday to save a dog’s life. Butler County Emergency Communications says Andover Fire-Rescue, the Augusta Department of Public Safety, Butler County Rescue Squad, Butler County Fire District 7 and Butler County EMS rescued a dog that was stuck on a small rock in fast-moving floodwater.

This happened Tuesday afternoon in a small/lake or large pond in the Briarcliff Lakes Estates housing development near Benton. With the proper equipment and plenty of teamwork, the dog was brought to shore safely.

Butler County Emergency Communications says the dog reunited with its owner.

“This was a very challenging rescue that could have a very different outcome if attempted by untrained and unequipped people,” Butler County Emergency Communications says.
