Hotdog bits used in rescue

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — An animal control officer equipped with hotdog bits 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 she growled.

He tells The Columbian he looked up to see what  Bella was upset about and observed a 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 a shelter.
