PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Fire crews rushed to help a frightened dog Wednesday who had slipped down a 10-foot embankment.

Maya, a 3-year-old wilderness-trained Karelian Bear Dog, fell near a landing at Fanno Creek, Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue says.

The river was swollen and the dog was stuck in a root ball with water up to her chest.

No firefighters were hurt and Maya was not injured, the fire station says. 

Several teams, including TVF&R Water Rescue 59, Lake Oswego T211 and Tualatin police assisted with the rescue.
