Kaufman Fire Department responded to a call reporting a dog trapped in a culvert off FM 2578. Shift lead, Lt. Ballard, explained the dog was eating out of a local resident's trash before behind ran off.
Firefighters spent over an hour laboring to free the small canine from the culvert. The woman who called 911 ended up taking custody of the dog, later identified as a chihuahua.
The City of Kaufman’s Facebook page praised KFD, stating, “we are so proud of the Kaufman Fire Department for helping rescue this dog.”
The animal has received treatment and has found a home.
