Dispatcher: 2547, you did say the dog's in the yard, 43-- Crystal, right?

2547: We found out where it's supposed to be: it's in 43-- on Division. It went back in its yard and the factory worker said it's there, but there's no way I can get in to talk to the owner.

Dispatcher: 'Cause I had Animal Control on their way to Crystal. Should I give 'em a disregard?

2547: Tell 'em I'm here if they can get the dog, 'cause there's no way I can get in the yard to talk to the owner.

Dispatcher: So now it's 43-- on Division?

2547: That's where the dog relocated himself.
