Sometimes our pets get stuck in some tricky, unexpected places and need some help getting free — thankfully, you can always count on firefighters to help an animal in need.
Recently, one fire crew came to the rescue of a tiny one-week-old puppy who was trapped under a deck.
The Mount Pleasant Fire Department, in Texas, received a call about a lost puppy. Arriving on the scene, the firefighters realized that the newborn pup had gotten stuck under a house deck.
According to a Facebook post, the firefighters “put their trench rescue skills to work” to save the little dog.
Photos show the crew getting dirty, digging underneath the porch deck and crawling in to get the pup to safety.
Thankfully, the mission was a success and they reunited the dog with its mom.
“Great job A-shift, station 1!” the department wrote, thanking the fire team.
The story warmed people’s hearts, and dozens of comments on the post thank the firefighters for their hard work: “Awesome job – thanks so much for saving this fur baby!” one comment reads.
