MECHANICSVILLE, Md. — First responders did a great job earlier saving a small dog and reuniting it with its owner.

At approximately 12:45 p.m., the Hollywood Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad was dispatched to the 42300 block of Allison Drive for a possible animal rescue.

Rescue Squad 7 responded shortly after dispatch with six volunteers. Crews arrived to find a small dog that had fallen approximately 20 feet down a steep hill and was unable to make it back up. 

The crew of Rescue Squad 7 found an alternative access point and were able to safely remove the uninjured dog. 

The dog was reunited to his owner and Rescue Squad 7 returned to service a short time later.
