A Carrboro dog is back with her owner after spending some time 70 feet underground in a 12-inch drainage pipe.

Firefighters heard about the dog being in the pipe around 9 a.m. Friday after the dog's owner tried to coax her out with food.

A large backhoe was brough it to try to dig the dog out. But while using an infrared camera, firefighters realized the dog was not stuck, but scared.

A few minutes later they were able to lift her out.

The dog was not injured.
