Unique Request to Assist Franklin Police

On the evening of Sunday April 5th, Millstone Valley was dispatched at the request of Franklin PD ESU to the Colonial Park Leash Free Dog Park to assist with tools to remove a dog whose paw was confined to the seat track of a car.  Air 28 responded with a crew of four along with both Chiefs and found a dog with his paw had slid into the rear seat track of a SUV type vehicle.  The owners and ESU officer had tried several techniques to remove the paw, however, it was a bit wider than the opening of the track.  The crew utilizing the manual pump Holmatro tool was able to provide enough spread of the track to where the dog could remove his paw.  The crew then helped the owner check the dog for injuries which were minimal as the dog was interested in thanking those who helped him by going to each member and giving them “kisses”.  The dog owner and the large crowd who had gathered as the nice weather on that Sunday made the dog park a popular attraction thanked all who came to the rescue.
