Plumber rescues two-day-old puppy after it fell down a bathroom drain

It was around 10 p.m. when Joseph Egan, a plumber with Brisbane Plumbers, received a call about an unusual situation.

“We initially thought this was a prank call but it turned out to be legit,” The Brisbane Plumbers shared on Facebook.

A woman contacted the plumbers in a panic and claimed that her two-day-old puppy had fallen down a drain and was stuck. As a 24/7 operation, Egan went to the woman’s home to see what he could do.

With the use of a camera and careful manipulation, the puppy was freed.

🐶🐶🐶PUPPY IN A DRAIN!!!🐶🐶🐶Yes you read correct Puppy in Drain! 😳😳😳We initially thought this was a prank call but it turned out to be legit. This lady rang at around 10pm last night panicking and said, “my puppy has fallen down the floor drain and is stuck!”. It is nothing short of a miracle that it has survived being stuck down the drain for over 60mins. We were able to use our CCTV camera to locate the puppy in the drain so we knew where to cut and not cause any harm.

The puppy had reportedly fallen down a floor drain in the family’s bathroom and slide far down before becoming wedged in the pipe. Once the puppy was located and a portion of the drain was cut, Egan was unable to pull the puppy out, but after a few shakes the puppy came out.

🐶😳🐶PUPPY RESCUE!!!🐶😳🐶This puppy fell down the floor drain in the bathroom and got stuck on the outlet side of the gully 😳 We were fortunate to locate the puppy in the drain and cut out the section of pipe it was stuck in. We were unable to pull it out by its feet so we had shake the pipe in a downward action in order for it to slide out. It was pretty amazing that this little fella lasted over an hour in the drain and still managed to survive.The litter of puppies were only 2 days old and did not have names yet. The kids wanted to call it ‘Lucky’ but the Dad said it would be called ‘Dollars’ because in his words “This puppy has cost me a shit load of money”. Although he did say it was money well spent 😂😂😂For all your plumbing and drainage needs contact The Brisbane Plumbers 📞1300576388Or visit our website 🌎https://thebrisbaneplumbers.com.au 👨‍🏭 we have an emergency plumber on call providing a after hours service 24/7 👨‍🏭

“It is nothing short of a miracle that it has survived being stuck down the drain for over 60 mins.”

Since the litter of puppies had not yet been named, the family wanted to give this lucky pup a worthy name. While the children wanted to call it Lucky, the father wanted to call it Dollars because “this puppy has cost me a sh*tload of money.”

Although the father did indicate it was money well spent.

While Dollars would have been an interesting name, it’s been reported that the family settled on Troopie.

Thank you for saving this poor baby! Share this and thank Joseph for returning this puppy to his family.
