EVERETT, Wash. — Crews with the Everett Fire Department helped to rescue a 13-year-old pug/schnauzer mix and his owner after they were found stuck down a 35-foot embankment

Fire officials said the dog, named Mr. Gryfinn, went out by himself Saturday night and fell down the embankment.

The dog’s owner attempted to rescue him, but officials said the terrain was too steep to navigate back up without assistance.
