    A Good Samaritan helped rescue a Frisco woman's nearly blind dog from a storm drain on Wednesday.

    Elizabeth Nunn says her 10-year-old -- nearly blind and nearly deaf -- Pomeranian named Rocky went missing on Tuesday.

    Nunn and her husband were concerned for the Rocky's safety after spotting a bobcat in the neighborhood a few days earlier.

    "I was devastated," Nunn said. "I knocked on everybody's door -- this whole neighborhood."

    Nunn said some of her neighbors were out for a family walk Wednesday night when they heard a dog barking. The family found Rocky stuck in a storm drain.

    Nunn immediately called 911 to help rescue the dog.

    While dispatchers were sending animal control, Mike Stoll, an air conditioning technician who was in the neighborhood, opened the storm drain, climbed in and pulled Rocky to safety.

    Rocky was uninjured after 24 hours away from home. He is back with Nunn and her family.

    "I took a picture of him [Mike Stoll] with Rocky so he could remember his hero," Nunn said.
