Puppies Rescued After Being Trapped Underground
A litter of puppies have been rescued from an underground passage by police officers.
Five puppies that were hidden by their mother in an underground hideaway have been rescued by three police officers in Canada.
Police in Rivers, Manitoba have rescued five puppies from a tunnel the dogs' mother had dug. This happened on Tuesday. Officers started burrowing when they learned the mother was having trouble getting down to nurse and one of her pups was dehydrated. pic.twitter.com/g7bOlLQn9m— Sonia Aslam (@SoniaSAslam) August 29, 2018
Officers from Rivers Police Service were at a rural property for an unrelated call late Monday afternoon when the property owner approached them about puppies that had been buried by the property's dog (the mother of the litter.)
The owner noticed one of the puppies emerged from the tunnels on her own and seemed dehydrated and weak.
After a two-hour long dig, the puppies were found and rescued after being pulled from more than a metre below ground.
Thanks, in part, to a pup named Pickles, this litter was discovered in a deep underground hideaway in Rivers, MB. It took local police 2-hours to dig them out. https://t.co/xIPcTOYVXE #rescuedogs #dogrescue #puppyrescue pic.twitter.com/XqFg1HaMST— CBC Manitoba (@CBCManitoba) August 29, 2018
All of the puppies are doing well and were put into foster homes after a checkup from the vet.
"They are very nice and cute-looking puppies," the police chief said, which is incorrect, because these are actually the nicest and cutest puppies ever. Look at its face. LOOK. https://t.co/gjj7tsREi0 pic.twitter.com/HubmVgStMK— Andrea Ross (@_rossandrea) August 29, 2018
