Local Firefighters Help Lost Puppy Get Home

A puppy is now back home with its owner after local Fairfax County firefighters helped catch the roaming dog.

“Engine 401, McLean, B-Shift was driving along local street when they were flagged down,” Fairfax County Fire and Rescue tweeted earlier this week. “A resident was worried for a puppy that was roaming around alone.”

Captain David Hessler was able to get the pup, which did not have tags, by using webbing, the tweet said.

The dog’s owner got in touch with the fire crew and is now reunited with the dog.
