After being scared by a car, the tiny puppy raced beneath the canal channel and became trapped in the dark tunnel. She couldn't move till a cop arrived to help her.
Officer Joe Brazil is always willing to assist; in fact, he did not hesitate to rescue a helpless dog.
Peggy Edwards published her story on Facebook on May 2, 2016, and it quickly went viral. The story was touching, and it touched all of our hearts.
Joe, a police officer in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, was important to her story. It all started when a vehicle scared off a beautiful but anxious little Yorkshire terrier.
And the first thing the dog did was flee into a tunnel.
"On April 30th, a little dog was running about free and was frightened by a passing automobile. It collided with a tunnel through which a local creek runs. "She was stranded around 20-25 feet in and clinging to the edge," Peggy began relaying her story on Facebook.
Her instincts told her she had to help the small dog, but she was apprehensive.
She was afraid she'd scare the poor dog, causing it to retreat deeper into the tunnel. That's when she had an inspiration.
She quickly phoned the Woonsocket Police Department for assistance, and she was not disappointed.
Officer Joe Brazil arrived a few minutes later and was eager to assist.
Peggy then recounted what had occurred, and the courageous Officer was eager to assist.
"He plunged in without a second hesitation and emerged with a very wet, scared small dog." Lucky dog, he's a great man. "We're thrilled he was able to save the little girl," Peggy added.
The nice Officer removed his shoes and socks before entering the tunnel to save the tiny dog.
WJAR NBC10 was able to reach the Officer, who stated, "As I came closer, I could see Cece just clinging to the side and just trembling." "(The dog) was extremely, very scared."
Given how frightened she was, the Officer took additional precautions not to scare the tiny dog farther down the tunnel.
What he did next was incredible!
He let Cece scent his fingers a little further into the tunnel, until he was near enough to the scared dog, and then lifted her up!
"It almost appeared like she was saying thank you." "She seemed to know I was there to help," Brazil explained to WJAR NBC10.
The lovely dog appears so affectionate and grateful to the attractive officer who saved her, as seen by the photo.
After all, this dog wasn't a stray after all. She came from a lovely household. Cece was the name of this adorable dog, according to another interview with WJAR NBC10.
Cece's owner, Michelle Perez, was overjoyed that her dog had been found. According to her story, her mother-in-law gave her the beautiful puppy, but it escaped the next day!
"She is just five months old." "I couldn't sleep," Perez explained in an interview. "All I kept doing was driving around and contacting her."
Cece was rescued from the terrifying tunnel and reunited with her owner thanks to Peggy Edwards and the caring Officer Joe Brazil. We are all happy that Cece was saved and returned to her human!
