‘Roof, roof!’

Dog res­cued from over­hang roof at his home

Yuma Sun - - NATION / WORLD -

SPRING LAKE PARK, Minn. — “Roof! Roof!” He was prac­ti­cally beg­ging to be res­cued.

Fire­fight­ers in the Min­neapo­lis sub­urb of Spring Lake Park on Fri­day man­aged to help a 180-pound Saint Bernard named Whiskey who had got­ten stuck on the small roof of the over­hang at a side door of his home.

The home­owner’s mother was hous­esit­ting when Whiskey pushed out a win­dow screen and jumped onto the sec­ond-story over­hang.

She and po­lice tried to coax him back in­side with dog treats, but to no avail, so fire­fight­ers with a lad­der truck were sum­moned. One fire­fighter on a lad­der and two in­side even­tu­ally man­aged to pull Whiskey safely into the house.
