National Guardsmen moving debris in Greensburg today found a dog that survived being trapped in the rubble since Friday.

The guardsmen, with the Iola-based 891st Field Support Group, were using a skid-steer loader to move rubble near the Big Well when a black Labrador retriever popped out.

The dog -- clearly scared and injured -- ran as soon as it was free. The guardsmen, an insurance adjuster and two officials from the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks chased the dog east through town but couldn't catch it.

The dog appeared to be wearing a collar with tags.
