North Charleston firefighter rescues, adopts puppy

A North Charleston Firefighter is taking home a furry friend that he rescued last month.

‘Rocky’ was first spotted by Captain Paul Bryant when the station got a call for an animal trapped around 6:30 p.m. on March 30.

Upon arriving, the fire crew discovered that it was a small puppy trapped underneath concrete on a north Charleston street. Bryant said you could barely see his snout he was stuck so far back.

After taking a shovel and digging down into the ground underneath, Bryant was able to coax Rocky out of the hole, and immediately took him to the vet to have him checked out and see if he was microchipped.

After finding out that Rocky didn’t have an owner, Bryant decided he would give him a ‘furever’ home.

Bryant says he’s thankful to his crew, the dispatcher that took the call and the police officers that also responded to the scene, and we’re thanking them too!
