Residents of an urban community noticed a stray dog frequently going around the neighborhood with her five pups. They wanted to help rescue the dogs, but the family lives under a modified shipping container. It was too low to the ground which made it difficult to catch them.
They noticed that the family stopped coming around. It seemed that they were gone. But then one day, they saw the stray dog just sitting near a building all alone.
When some people came near her to check, she ran away. They then heard a small high-pitched cry coming from a pipe next to where she was sitting.
When they took a look, it was one of the puppies. He had fallen in and he couldn’t get out. His mom was sitting next to him keeping him company. There was nothing else she could do.
The other pups were nowhere around, they were left under the shipping container.
The people called animal control and asked for help. They had to act fast.
First, they set up a cage so that they could catch the dog and her pups. They placed the cage near her home and placed some food inside. Once the puppies got in, they closed the gate.
Now, it was the trapped pup’s turn to be rescued.
The rescue team got a tractor and dug beside the pipe. Once they were able to get to a depth where the puppy could climb out by himself, they broke the exposed part of the pipe. They couldn’t grab the puppy because there was a tunnel where he could hide. They had to wait for him to come out.
Eventually, the pup climbed out and they were able to catch him. He then joined the rest of the family who was at a vet’s clinic.
Thankfully, all of them were healthy and they will be kept in the shelter until they can find someone to adopt them.
