WEST SENECA, N.Y. (WIVB) — On Monday morning, West Seneca police officers responded to a report of a dog that became trapped under a house on Clinton Street.

“We’ve sent our two best dog whisperers,” the police department tweeted.

According to police, the dog, whose name is Buttercup, managed to get underneath the home’s foundation.

“Digging a hole has been determined to be the only way out,” they said in an update.

Shortly before 12:15, Buttercup was saved. Police posted a photo of one of the officers pulling her out from under the house.

Not long after this, another update was posted, saying Buttercup was okay, and “appreciates everyone rooting for her during this harrowing rescue.”
