A German Shepherd needed in the assistance of California's Lathrop Manteca Fire Department last week after it chased a cat up a tree. 

"You may have heard that our firefighters get cats out of trees, but what about dogs?!?! Right after Truck 30 and Engine 35 dropped off Santa that was exactly their next call," the department shared on Facebook. "Glad to hear that all turned out well for this pooch, and we are all pretty sure he’ll think twice about chasing cats up the next tree...nice work Engine 35!"

Once the dog was back to safety the department was able to get it some water.
