The little puppy was given the name Grace by firefighter James Tooter Hayes. Sweet!
An SUV engine compartment proved to be a home for a small dog trapped inside the engine compartment. Her rescuer has become her forever family.
A Dallas dog was rescued by firefighters last week, according to KDFW. A tire had to be removed to get to the trapped dog, a two-hour ordeal. She was taken to the Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center by rescuers after being freed from the car, the Lakewood/East Dallas Advocate reported. James Tooter Hayes, a firefighter, showed up two days later.
The pup had been rescued by him and he decided to adopt her. Grace was the name given to her.
Dallas Fire-Rescue posted on Facebook that its members serve and protect humans and animals alike by #Caring, #Serving, and #Protecting. Last but not least… I’d like to thank James Tooter Hayes for demonstrating love and compassion for Grace that she clearly hadn’t received before.
Thanks to Dallas Fire-Rescue Fire Station 31 and Dallas Fire Station #17 for responding to a 911 call…
Hayes lives on a ranch with plenty of room and lots of animals, according to the TV station. That sounds like a pretty sweet life for our little friend!
I am thankful that it’s a good story, said Kari Keeton, the SUV’s owner. “We were all very involved in making sure the dog was taken care of,” she told a local news station. In public service, we have to see the worst of society, so this became a great story.”
