Rescue firefighters used a series of ladders to reach the trapped dog before finally being able to free it.

The dog was later then handed over to Woodside RSPCA Animal Centre, which would reunite the cold dog with its owner.

“When we reached the scene, our hearts sank as we found the dog shivering in the cold water running through the culvert.

‘t was clear that the poor pup had been there for quite some time. So with immense care and help from the Woodside RSPCA Animal Centre and Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service Loughborough Station we carefully extricated the dog from the culvert, providing immediate comfort and warmth.

With RSPCA assistance we made sure that this brave little soul was reunited with its owner.” Castle Donington Fire Station stated.

The rescue was declared over at around 3:20 PM, confirmed by the Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service.

This rescue mission led to a reminder to all dog owners to be cautious around any kind of water.

‘We encourage everyone to ensure that their pets are microchipped and never follow them into water. Call the emergency services.’ Castle Donington Fire Station added
