A Yorkshire terrier was rescued Sunday, March 12, 2017, along with four of her puppies after she gave birth in their owners' backyard and got stuck under a shed. Suffolk police responded to a 911 call from an Adrian Court home in North Amityville just after 10 a.m. and said the dog and her newborns needed help getting out from under the shed. Emergency Services responded and lifted the shed using air bags.
