RIVERSIDE (CBSLA) — A dog will be reunited with its owner after being rescued from a slick canal in Riverside.

A dog was spotted stuck in a canal near Marlborough Avenue by a Riverside Public Works crew, who called Riverside County Animal Services, spokesman John Welsh said.

Four officers responded to the scene and led the dog to a location with shorter banks so they could pull it to safety.

The cattle-breed dog has a microchip, and Riverside County Animal Services say the dog may have gone missing last week.

(A previous version of this article inaccurately stated the dog was missing for nine years.)
