Itty Bitty Dog Rescue Committee! Firefighters Save Tiny 1-Week-Old Puppy Stuck Under Texas Deck
The Mount Pleasant Fire Department shared on Facebook that they "put their trench rescue skills to work" when saving the little dog
A 1-week-old puppy is already leading an eventful life.
According to the Mount Pleasant Fire Department in Texas, firefighters recently received a call about a baby dog needing immediate help.
"This morning we received a call for a lost puppy. Crews from Station 1 put their trench rescue skills to work and the 1 week old victim was successfully rescued and reunited with its mom. Great job A-shift, station 1!!" the Texas fire department wrote on Facebook Wednesday.
Photos from the described rescue show firefighters digging underneath a home's deck, making a hole large enough for an adult human. What the firefighters pulled out of this giant hole was much smaller than a person.
All the commotion was created to save a 1-week-old puppy no larger than a cellphone. The final shots from the Mount Pleasant Fire Department's photo series of the puppy's rescue show the firefighters posing with the freed pup.
