Rescued puppy becomes a rescue

Puppy finds new home with deputy who saves him


FORT PIERCE, Fla. – Deputies in Fort Pierce had just finished serving civil process paperwork at a home when they heard a dog whimpering.

While searching the neighborhood to find the source of the whimpering, they came across a puppy who had fallen into a collapsed septic drain.

They pulled the scared, exhausted puppy out and gave it several baths while trying to locate the owner of the dog.

When no one claimed the puppy, the deputy that rescued him from the drain decided to adopt him. 

According to the sheriff's office, the pooch is "enjoying a life in the lap of luxury" with his new owner.
