Dogs are clever animals that have the ability to pick up on their owner’s emotions and provide comfort. Nevertheless, they can get themselves into sticky situations just like young children and require the assistance of adults to get out of harm’s way. Although this is widely known, it becomes concerning when a mistake puts their life at risk.
The cause of the puppy’s unfortunate entrapment in the drain remains a mystery to authorities. It is unclear whether there is any malicious intent behind it. Nevertheless, the puppy faced significant difficulty while trying to extricate itself from the drain.
There was a poor critter trapped in the drain with no escape route in sight. Luckily, a kind resident spotted the animal and quickly reached out to the San Bernardino County Fire Department in California, USA, for their expert assistance.
As soon as the emergency was reported, rescuers and members of the Animal Control Department arrived on the spot to handle the situation. However, upon arrival, they were faced with a dog whose body was hidden in the sewer, with only its muzzle visible. The condition of the dog could not be determined at that point.
The firefighters had to act fast and decided to break up the concrete to rescue the trapped drain dog. They utilized a variety of tools such as saws, concrete cutters, jack hammers and hand tools to aid in the rescue operation.
The hard work paid off and the naughty husky was freed without any visible harm, although he seemed frightened. Thankfully, the dog’s owner was found through his microchip and was unaware of the troubling situation his furry friend had gotten himself into. The rescue team spent two hours retrieving the dog, but luckily, he was unscathed. Animal Control was able to get in touch with the owner and arrange for him to pick up his beloved pet later that day. Gray, the 5-year-old husky, was finally reunited with his relieved owner in the late afternoon.
