- Santa Maria, California, USA -
A few weeks ago the Santa Maria Fire Department received a call about a puppy being trapped in a local canal on Stokes and Sugarbush.
The E5 responded and discovered that a tiny Chihuahua had fallen into a flooded canal and was howling for help.
A Firefighter used a ladder to get to the frightened furbaby who appeared to be a senior.
He scooped up the tiny pup with a blanket.
The pooch was wet and dehydrated. He is now in the care of animal control.
