A tiny Michigan puppy was recently rescued from an underground pipe and became a viral video star ... just in time to warm hearts this Valentine's Day!
What's not to love about a tale of human rescuers and a trapped puppy, bonded by love? Not a lot, people. The story begins in subterranean Detroit.
Five days ago, a four-week-old Puggle / Dauschund mix got trapped in an underground pipe, and was stuck overnight. Workers could hear, but not see it.
The Michigan Humane Society called plumbers who brought cameras to look inside the pipe and a Bobcat excavator was brought in to dig around the pipes ...
Eventually, workers were able to reach the section of the pipe where the precious little critter was squeaking for help ... and look what emerged!
The dog was in surprisingly good health, just a little dehydrated and cold. Even better news? You can adopt him from the Michigan Humane Society!
Even if you're one of those people who curses February 14 as a useless, Hallmark holiday (i.e. a guy), you've gotta be tearing up just a little here.
Right? Right. Happy Valentine's Day!
