A Good Samaritan in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, called the police for help on Saturday when a lost puppy got trapped in the culvert she ran into when she was frightened by a passing car. Police Officer Joseph Brazil didn’t waste any time. He took off his shoes and rolled up his pants to wade inside the tunnel and save the 5-month-old Yorkshire Terrier and Shih Tzu mix, who was “clinging to the side and just shaking,” Brazil said. The woman who called for help, Peggy Edwards, caught a sweet photo of Brazil holding the puppy as they emerged from the tunnel, and shared it on Facebook to thank him. “He went in without hesitation and came out with a very wet, scared little dog. Great guy, Lucky dog. We are very happy he was able to save the little gal,” Edwards wrote. Cece was later happily reunited with her relieved owner, who said she’d just gotten the puppy and she escaped from a back door. — Read it at Rhode Island’s Turn to 10
