Puppy rescued from sewage drain in Thailand

This is the heartwarming moment a puppy was rescued after getting trapped in a sewage pond.

The stray pooch was seen struggling in the drainage pit from a nearby waste processing system in Surat Thani province, southern Thailand on December 19.

Concerned resident Suchat Songprom saw the little dog and used a basket to lift it up to safety. He washed the puppy, fed it and took it home.

Suchat, who has now adopted the brown Apsin dog as a pet, said: ‘I thought something might happen to it if I don’t do something. The dog is very cute and healthy.’

The puppy is believed to have been born to a stray before becoming separated from the mother and falling into the dirty water.
