HOUSTON (CW39) The crew at Houston Fire Department Station 49 are named heroes after rescuing a tiny pup from a pipe deep in the ground.
Earlier this week, it took the Houston SPCA Rescue Team and firefighters from Station 49 of the Houston Fire Department several hours to rescue a puppy that SPCA officials said had fallen deep into a narrow underground pipe.
The puppy was crying for a long time before the owner could find out where the puppy was under the concrete and call for help.
Firefighters from Station 49 broke through the concrete to widen the hole so they could safely reach the puppy before it could crawl further into the pipe, SPCA officials said. The puppy’s owner was slim enough to reach inside and complete the rescue. According to the SPCA, a veterinarian was also on site in case emergency care was required. The puppy and dog mom (who was also very worried) are fine now that they are reunited.
