Crews are working to rescue a puppy that fell in a sewer drain in the Ballantyne area of south Charlotte Thursday morning.

Charlotte firefighters said a 5-week-old toy poodle is stuck in a drain on Evergreen Terrace Drive. Firefighters said the puppy fell in a sewer pipe that is approximately six feet down into the hole.

It appears that crews ripped up a portion of a road to rescue the puppy.

The puppy reportedly fell inside a service pipe that services nearby homes. Water has been shut off in the area while crews work to save the dog.

Officials have dug two separate holes in case the puppy ends up further down in the sewage line. Crews have created a "Plan B" option to follow the puppy's trail in case she gets into the main line so they'll be able to catch her at the other end.

Crews said they are "pretty confident" they'll be able to rescue the puppy.
