Police Officer Saves A Trapped Dog In A Drain And Becomes His New Owner Too

As police officers were leaving a call at a Florida home this week, they heard something that stopped them in their tracks.  A faint whimpering.

As the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office recounted on its Facebook page, deputies followed that cry to a septic drain in an empty lot.

At the bottom of that drain was a sopping wet puppy, unable to climb back out.

It didn’t take them long to haul the tired, terrified dog from the drain.

After giving him a bath and trying to find his owner without luck, Officer James Gettings decided their meeting was more than a coincidence.

Fate had brought them together. And together they would stay.

Gettings named the puppy Puddle, naturally. And, in no time at all, the dog who came from the bottom of a drain found himself at the top of the household hierarchy.

Today, he rules the bed…
