A “big old fat” basset hound stuck in the Tennessee River in Chattanooga was lifted to safety by a construction crew on February 19, local media reported.

The dog, named Buddy, was trapped in some brush along the banks of the river.

His rescue by local construction workers was posted to Facebook by the Hamilton County Special Tactics and Rescue Services (STARS), a network of first responders.

In one of the videos, the workers can be heard commenting on the “big old fat basset” as their colleague gently scoots the hefty pooch up the ladder rung by rung.

“Shout out to one of our own Jon Nash and his J Cumby construction coworkers today helping to rescue a dog that was stuck in the Tennessee River,” STARS wrote on Facebook. “While our team wasn’t there we are proud of our L.T. and his crew today. Great Job!!!”
