This morning a three month old half-pitbull half-Rotweiller fell down a storm drain into about 5 inches of water.
Animal control officers went down two different manholes to rescue the puppy.
The search was successful and they pulled the dog to safety.
Within seconds the puppy was wagging his tail to let everyone know he was okay.
