Rumble This is the heartwarming video of a successful rescue mission two Good Samaritans performed on a frightened little stray dog and prevented him to drown in a filthy drain by the road.

A tiny puppy has been saved from drowning after slipping into a filthy drain by a roadside. This stray puppy has been stuck in a drain for hours while kind-hearted rescuers were trying to free him from the filthy water.

The poor pup was spotted by passersby yelping and cowering in the drainage ditch that runs alongside a main road. Barely a few weeks old, the stray was unable to climb back out of the four foot drain, with its mother standing nearby.

Local volunteers from the Uttar Dinajpur People for Animals (UDPFA) rushed to the scene fearing the youngster may not have long to live if the water level rose by just a few inches. Once on the scene in Raiganj, West Bengal, India, they set about trying to pluck the poorly pup from the water.

However, terrified by his ordeal, he cowered in a tunnel and refused to come out. Despite of their endless efforts the frightened puppy kept running away. So they came up with an idea to use a bamboo stick and try to usher him out into the open.

Rescuers Somen, Raktim and Tapash used a makeshift bamboo stick to usher the pup out into the open, where they could pluck it to safety. Eventually, after five minutes they managed to successfully get him out, but the scared pup started biting out of self defence. Undeterred they kept fighting to save the little pup from drowning.

The dog was covered head to toe in a thick filth from the polluted water, which they washed off in a bucket and sent the pup on its way to reunite with its happy mother. After his rescuers bathed him to clear the dirt off his body, he quickly calmed down and relaxed, and once clean they reunited him with his mother. Faith in humanity restored!
