150-pound dog ‘seemed thankful’ after rescue by Austin firefighters

AUSTIN, TX — A large dog’s tumble down an incline this weekend led to a coordinated rescue operation by Austin firefighters.

The Austin Fire Department posted on Twitter that crews strapped a 150-pound Mastiff mix into a sled-like stretcher Sunday evening and used ropes to pull him up a steep hill to safety. The post stated the dog’s name is Mason, and he “fell down an incline near the Colorado River.”
