Puppy Rescue – Orleans Road

The Harwich Fire Department responded to an Orleans Road address to assist the Harwich Police Department with a different kind of rescue.  The Harwich Police had responded when the homeowner called saying one puppy from a litter of 7 was stuck underneath her deck.  The Police were unable to get to the puppy and asked for the Fire Department to respond. 

Captain Donald Parker and Firefighter Ryan Edwards responded and after a size up of the situation, Firefighter Edwards was able to squeeze under the deck and rescue the 2 week old Leonberger puppy.  The puppy was reunited with it’s six other siblings and mother.
