Usually it's cats up a tree

Usually it's cats who end up being stuck up trees and in need of rescue.

Instead of a tabby it was a dog name Laddy who ended up literally out on a limb.

The 7-year-old border collie had been missing for two days.

And when the dog was finally found - it was just two blocks from his home - stuck up a tree.

Ron Stevenson tells the Quad-City Times he was working in the yard when he heard a dog whining.

Once he tracked the sound, he found the dog at least 10 feet high in the tree.

The dog's owner says Laddy was probably chasing a squirrel when he treed himself.
