A two-day-old puppy is lucky to be alive after it became stuck inside a pipe when it fell down a floor drain in a bathroom at the weekend.
Troopie the puppy was rescued by The Brisbane Plumbers’ owner Joseph Egan after he received a call from a Beenleigh home at 10pm on Saturday.
Initially thinking the call was a prank, Mr Egan said he was surprised the adventurous puppy survived.
“It’s definitely not often you get a call about a puppy stuck like that, but also then that it survived,” he said.
“There were actually two puppies that fell down and this one ran through the gully and got wedged.
“I’m amazed it survived and I’ve heard it’s now doing really well.”
Mr Egan cut out the section of pipe the puppy was stuck in and was initially unable to pull him out by his feet so instead shook him out in a downward action.
He said the kids wanted to call the puppy “Lucky’’ but the father said it might be renamed “Dollars’’ because it cost him a “s---load of money”.
