“Dogs are funny and curious creatures who love exploring, especially when they’ve escaped their yard. At least this furry group brought their friends along when they ran into a culvert nearby,” the sheriff’s office joked on Facebook.

“Thankfully our friends at West Metro Fire Rescue were able to rescue them safely.”
