DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- Officials say rescuers saved a dog from a septic tank outside a Palm Beach County home.
    
Delray Beach Fire Rescue and Palm Beach County Fire Rescue responded Tuesday night.
    
The family told officials that the tank had been open because it needed some repair work. Most of the waste had already been pumped out by the septic worker.
    
The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that Shelly, a 96-pound pointer, was about 6 feet underground when rescuers fashioned a makeshift harness and used a tripod and winch to lift her out.
    
The dog appeared unharmed, but officials advised the family to take her to a veterinarian as a precaution.
