Police rescues two puppies from drainage

Date Posted: 1998-05-09

A jogger heard a mother dog's cries and ran to her assistance early in the morning, Thursday, on Senaga Island in Tomishiro Village. He then found that that the dog had two young puppies fallen and trapped in a sewage drain.

The mother, a white dog of uncertain mix, attracted the man's attention by howling, yipping, and barking as he jogged past the area her young ones had fallen. The man went to investigate and the dog pulled him toward the pipe. When he looked in, he saw two puppies in the drainage struggling to keep their heads above water. The pipe was filled with water due to recent rains. The mother hovered nearby, barking and waiting for help. "The mother dog was trying to get my help, she was watching me (as I ran) and pleading with me to help save her babies. It was like real human love," the man said.

He ran to a nearby phone and called the police, who arrived to save the animals. When they approached the pipe, the mother dog became agitated as she waited for the rescue. The police first pulled a brown and white, then a black and white puppy from the drain as the mother remained close to the jogger.

"The connection between mother and child is just as strong between humans and animals," was the statement the jogger made after witnessing the mother's long struggle to have her puppies saved.

The puppies were extremely weak after the rescue and were unable to eat or drink, but by the next morning, they were nursing on their mother and seemed to be doing fine. The small family is being taken care of by local police while their owner is sought. The police is asking for public's help in trying to locate the dogs' owner.
