In Florida, deputies from the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office were leaving a call when they heard something that caused them to pause: a very imperceptible whimper emanating from a septic drain.
They came upon a dog who was about to drown. He had no place to call home, so one of the cops quickly adopted him after concluding that their finding him was fate.
The faint shouts came from an empty lot, and the deputies had almost left the call they had just finished. They would have likely been overlooked by most people, but not by these guys.
One of the cops, James Gettings, discovered the little dog fighting to remain afloat in a septic drain. When he was saved, he was terrified, worn out, and on the verge of giving up.
They gave him several baths to get him smelling like a dog again, and then tried to find his family. But it seems there was none, and Gettings believed their meeting had to be fate.
So he took him home, and aptly named him Puddle. Now he is growing up very comfortably, and wants for absolutely nothing.
