The tenants of an East Houston home suddenly moved out and left their dog behind to fend for himself…
The poor dog was forced to wander the street and ended up crawling into a storm drain in search of shelter.
Yet after crawling inside, the dog became trapped and started crying out for help. Nearby neighbors including retired Marine Adam O’Brien heard the frantic cries for help, and when he realized it was the same abandoned dog, he didn’t hesitate to jump in and rescue him.
“It seems like the dog has had a rough life,” O’Brien said. However, after over a month without any human contact, the dog was terrified and cowered inside a small pipe. O’Brien tried to lure him out with food, but had to wait about 30 minutes for the dog to trust him enough to crawl out.
Once out of the pipe, a Houston SPCA worker climbed down into the sewer and the two carefully picked the dog up and carried him up a ladder to safety. After the dog was rescued, they brought him back to the SPCA’s shelter to recuperate until they could find him a forever home.
Watch the entire video below to see the amazing moment this former Marine and an SPCA rescuer work together to save this trapped dog.
