Puppy’s amazing rescue from a vent in Douglas County home by South Metro Fire Rescue.

South Metro Fire Rescueshared on social media that it responded to a report of a puppy in need of help at a home in Unincorporated Douglas County near Parker on Tuesday, June 11, at around 5 p.m.

Officials reported that a 12-week-old Pekingese puppy named Archie Bean, weighing 5 lbs, accidentally fell through an open floor vent on the third floor of a townhome. They shared a video where the owner can be seen near the vent, speaking to the puppy who was whimpering from deep inside the three-story hole. In the video, she described the puppy as a “very slippery, very slinky dog.”

“Archie unintentionally slipped through the uncovered vent after jumping from the bed, leaving him stranded for over three hours,” the fire department said.

 

The officials mentioned that the fire rescue crew from SMFR Tower 45 collaborated with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department and Plumbline Services to determine the exact location of the dog and devise a safe plan for its rescue.

“Archie come here, buddy,” one of the rescuers called out to him. The pup could be seen finally poking his head out of the vent. One of the rescuers eventually pulled the canine free out of the pipe and carried the puppy over to its owner.

“That is a prayer answered,” the emotional dog owner said in the video. “… “Everybody who [were] digging into my house and cutting in the walls and the ceilings. Thank you so much for not giving up. I’m very happy.”

It’s nice to know that if you call 911 in Colorado you will get the response of great professionals like SMFR,the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department and Plumbline Services,
