Dog alerts NC city workers to plight of friends


GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Two dogs have been rescued from a 6-foot hole after another dog alerted workers in a North Carolina city.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported that a mowing crew with Greensboro's Field Operations Department saw a mixed-breed shepherd and another dog run from a wooded area. The workers say the shepherd mix laid down near a fence and refused to budge.

When the workers stopped to see why the dog refused to leave, the crew members saw two other dogs in a 6-foot hole where the dog was lying.

Officer P.G. Loflin with animal control pulled the trapped dogs from the hole. Loflin says the three dogs were taken to the county animal center for evaluation, although all three appeared to be in good shape.

The second dog that ran from the woods couldn't be found.
