The dog, a mixed breed hound named Hubert, was trapped for more than two hours before he was freed and reunited with its owner, said firefighter Brian Alkins, a department spokesman.

The dog escaped while out with a dog walker at Millennium Park, Alkins said. Boston fire crews responded to the scene shortly after the dog’s escape.

Several other agencies, including National Grid, Boston Water and Sewer Commission, and Boston Drain Company, aided fire crews in locating and rescuing the dog, according to Alkins.

Fire crews dug into the dirt in order to reach the pipes where the dog was trapped underground. They drilled holes into the pipes, then inserted camera equipment to pinpoint the dog’s exact location, Alkins said.
