LAKEWOOD, Colo. (KDVR) — A dog was rescued Wednesday after she fell into a curbside storm grate in Lakewood.
The dog, Barkley, was on a morning walk with her owner near West 15th Place and Quail Street when she suddenly fell into the ground, according to West Metro Fire Rescue.
Barkley is a blind Shih Tzu, who the fire rescue said likes to get outside.
She tends to walk close to the curb, but fire rescue said this time she fell down through a storm grate.
West Metro Fire Rescue’s Tower 2 crew removed the grate, and Lakewood Animal Control climbed down into the storm grate and rescued her.
Luckily, Barkley was not injured in the fall, according to the fire rescue.
