SPRING LAKE PARK, Minn. (CBS/AP) — “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 got stuck on the small roof of an overhang at a side door of his home.
The homeowner’s mother was house-sitting 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 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.
