There was a report of a dog in distress and The San Bernardino Animal Services Department responded. After hearing the dog's whimpers officers found a small black-and-white terrier mix up to its neck in a hole in the field.

He had dust and dirt in his lungs and was given fluids and antibiotics. He is in stable condition and will be monitored. The biggest concern is the material in his lungs.
