Washington Deputy crawls into the pipe to rescue an injured dog

A deputy in Washington state crawled into a stream to rescue an injured dog that had been hit by a car.

Video posted on social media by the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office shows the incident that occurred on September 7. Animal control was not immediately available to respond to the scene just before 10 p.m., and deputies were able to see the dog in the tube.

“One of our deputies took off his gear and crawled into the pipe to rescue the puppy. You can see the dog lying on top of the deputy when he reached him,” the post read.

The deputy then used a blanket to slowly pull the dog away. The dog was taken to an emergency vet, and it was determined that he needed emergency surgery and was a stray without an owner or a microchip.

The dog, affectionately named “Piper,” was about to be euthanized. When the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office called the vet to prevent the dog from being put down, the vet’s office said a deputy who was there when Piper was rescued had already called and asked them to perform the surgery.

With the help of Sheriff Ed Troyer, the department contacted People for Animal Care and Kindness, who covered the costs of Piper’s emergency surgery.

Piper is now recovering, but it is still unclear if the family is trying to find her.

“They have stepped up where many have not, these deputies are full of compassion and amazement! So proud of these men!” reads the department’s Instagram post. Without any help, the dog likely remained in the pipe under the road and did not survive, the sheriff’s office said.
