Police officers from Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico, thankfully came to the rescue of a black puppy that fell inside a sewer drain. Luckily a local man managed to spot the dog and alert the necessary authorities. A rescue unit were then dispatched to retrieve the scared pet.
The man who spotted the unfortunate position of the puppy noticed the pet lying on top of garbage about five feet below street level he was shocked at what he saw and immediately called the police.
Officers Noel Estrada and Carlos Ortiz were dispatched to scene to rescue the pet believed to be approximately six to one year old.
The officers were able to secure and retrieve the pet quite quickly. Once the puppy was out of the drain, the officers wrapped him up well with blankets and transported him to the San Juan municipal shelter on Kennedy Ave.
The dog had no ID tags so we hope the owners are looking for them or someone steps forward to give the innocent puppy a home.
