Terrell firefighters rescue puppy stuck in septic tank

Volunteer firefighters in Terrell, east of Dallas, saved a puppy that had fallen into a septic tank.

The department said the dog and the firefighters were wet and smelly, but everyone is okay.

The puppy’s owner was unable to get the dog out of the 6 by 10-inch hole because it was about 5 feet down.
