Police Officer Saves A Dog Who Was Trapped In A Drain, Then Becomes His New Owner

When police officers were leaving a call at a Florida home this week, they heard something that stopped them in their tracks.  They heard a faint whimpering.

As the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office recounted on its Facebook page, deputies followed that cry to a septic drain in an empty lot.

At the bottom of that drain?  A sopping wet puppy, unable to climb back out.


It didn’t take them long to haul the tired, terrified dog from the drain.


After giving him a bath and trying to find his owner without luck, Officer James Gettings decided their meeting was more than a coincidence.

Fate had brought them together. And together they would stay.


Gettings named the puppy Puddle, and, in no time at all, the dog who came from the bottom of a drain found himself at the top of the household hierarchy.

Today, he rules the bed…


… lords over the shoes.


And, thanks to Gettings, has a future.
