In Arlington, Texas, firefighters ended a two-day search for a deaf 15-year-old dog with a happy reunion on Saturday evening. The dog, Zoey, was rescued from a storm drain near Kelly Elliott Road and Bretts Court.

According to the Arlington Fire Department, Zoey had been lost since Thursday. On Saturday, police and firefighters along with city crews were dispatched to the area trying to figure out how to free Zoey from the drain.

“This weekend, AFD crews were dispatched to the 4900 block of Kelly Elliott Rd after a report of a dog stuck in a storm drain. 15-year-old Zoey had been missing for a few days. AFD’s Technical Rescue Team was sent to evaluate the most appropriate way to remove the dog. Zoey was over 400′ from the nearest entrance into the storm drain. Crews had to remove concrete and access the pipe. Zoey was removed at 10:42PM and taken to an Animal Medical Center.”
