    So sorry to see this happen to such a nice man!!! He recently worked on my company car and I got to meet his WONDERFUL little dog Jack! I fell in love with him so much I brought my wife up there to meet him as well. She ended up grooming the dog a few days later. Praying for a positive outcome for Ed and his family!!

    My heart goes out to my brother Ed and his family during this time of misfortune. I’m also grateful that Jack is okay as well. Thank you Escambia Fire and Rescue for your service and saving Jack’s little four legged life!

    Glad no one was hurt, and that the shop dog was rescued. Praying for the owner and his family. I know this will be a major impact on their lives; this small shop is their only source of livelihood.

    Thank you firefighters for rescuing the dog! Your work is often undervalued, and I’m sure you don’t get paid enough.

    I made the call to 911. So happy to see no one harmed and the sweet dog got out safely. Prayers go out to the sweet owner, family and friends we talked to.
