A female dog was safely rescued after being stuck beneath a street in Cleveland, Ohio for several days.

Animal rescue teams headed to the scene Friday after receiving multiple calls about the trapped dog.

Crew members and volunteers tried for hours to get the dog out. As it turns out, food proved to be a successful rescue tool.

"It took wet food from one of our other volunteers to get her to come out before we finally coaxed her out," said Becca Riker with Second Hand Mutts.

The bad news is that authorities believe the dog was abandoned by her owner. However, several families have already shown interest in adopting the dog.
