    Officers responded to the dock near the 900 block of Fairview Avenue North around 8:45 p.m. to help rescue Indiana Bones. 

    The department's Harbor Unit and patrol officers tried to send in a police diver to reach Indiana Bones but were unable to get to him, police said. 

    Eventually, police said harbor officers pried up a board on the dock, discovered they were digging in the correct place and safely retrieved the dog. 

    Indiana Bones was then returned to his owner, police said.
