We love our pets and always try to do our best for them but there are certain human actions that can unwittingly put furry pals in danger and this is one such example.

A neighbour looked out of their window and saw a stray German Shepherd dog running excitedly around the gardens of a nearby building. But then, something strange happened. The pup suddenly and mysteriously disappeared from view as if by magic.

A strange disappearance

The neighbour acted quickly and called the local guard.

When the police arrived, there was initially no sign of the pup but thankfully they continued with their search and at the last moment discovered that the puppy had fallen into the septic tank on the property.

When they pulled the German Shepherd out, she was tired, scared and filthy. The pup, who wasn’t chipped, was taken to a rescue centre where veterinary staff checked her over.

A lucky escape

This event could have ended very differently. Not only could she have drowned but also been suffocated by the highly toxic gasses which are emitted from the tank.

If it wasn’t for the quick-thinking actions of the neighbour and the Pabianice Municipal Guard Unit this story could have ended very differently indeed.
