REDMOND, OR -- It took a team effort to rescue a dog caught in a Redmond canal, Monday afternoon. A Central Oregon irrigation district employee discovered the pup pinned against the debris gate by the force of the water. Officials don't know how long it had been in the water. 


Redmond Police and Fire crews responded to the area behind Home Depot, on the north end of town, and got to work. A Community Services officer climbed out to the debris gate and -- while being held by firefighters, so he didn't fall in -- used a catch-pole to rescue the dog.


Other than being cold and wet, the dog was in good condition, and was taken to Brightside Animal Center.
