Fireman Saves Puppy In More Ways Than One

April Livingston | April 25th, 2019

A family was out for a bike ride in South Carolina when they heard a puppy crying. They stopped their bikes to look for the little pup and realized it was trapped under a large pile of concrete and dirt. They weren’t sure what to do, so they called 911. Soon the police and fire department from North Charleston arrived to free the puppy. Captain Paul Bryant from the North Charleston Fire Department said the family pointed them toward the area where they heard the cries and they found large chunks of concrete and the puppy stuck under the rubble.

Captain Paul Bryant pushed all the concrete aside with a pry bar and tried to pull the puppy, who was later named Rocky, out. But he was still stuck, so he took out a shovel and eventually found enough room to free the little puppy. It took about 10 minutes to free Rocky from his spot, but no one really knows how long he was stuck there. As soon as Rocky was free from the rubble he was so happy he began licking Paul’s face. He had a lot of energy and love to share with his rescuer. The family who found Rocky agreed to take him to the local animal hospital to ensure he wasn’t injured from his ordeal. After they left, Paul couldn’t stop thinking about the little pup.

Rocky was checked for a microchip and there wasn’t one and no one was able to locate his owner. When Paul heard that news he knew what he needed to do: he was going to adopt Rocky. Luckily, Rocky did not have any injuries from his ordeal and soon was able to be reunited with his rescuer. Rocky was so happy to see Paul again that he couldn’t stop licking his face—he was so thrilled to be back together again. Rocky and Paul are finally together again and so happy!
