Sophie safe after rescue

Youve heard of putting on the dog, but what about digging out one?

Thats what Olathe firefighters did Friday morning when they were called to help Olathe Animal Control rescue a dog that had burrowed under a familys concrete patio in the 11900 block of Cottonwood Drive.

In about 25 minutes, rescuers reached Sophie, a 2-year-old female Jack Russell terrier, by digging a small trench under the patio.

Its great to see that Sophie is OK and back with her family,” said Battalion Chief Ken Keiter.
