150-pound dog rescued from roof twice in one day

Meet Maverick, a 150-pound black and white Malamute from Pennsylvania. The adorable and fluffy pup caused quite the scene when his neighbor saw Maverick punch out a window screen and climb onto the roof. The neighbor called 911, nervous about Maverick falling.

"The dog had punched the screen out. We kind of chuckled as we went up," said Chief Kevin Hazleton of the Nanticoke City Fire Department. Initially, Maverick's rescuers were nervous to approach him without his owners. But the puppy was "nothing but friendly".

But, a mere 30 minutes later, the fire rescue received another call from the same neighbor. "The neighbor literally saw the dog open [the window] back up. We didn't want this little guy coming off of the roof," Hazelton said.

Maverick was just admiring the view!
