One Maryland family had a lot to be thankful this weekend, after their dog–which had been missing for more than a year–was discovered in a drainpipe in Bethesda.
Fox40 reports that a passerby walking his own dog discovered Cookie, a 30-pound Wheaten Terrier, wedged deep in a drainpipe. It took a rescue crew two hours to extract Cookie from his hiding place, using a firehose filled with compressed air. This was Cookie’s second brush with death–as a puppy, he had reportedly been rescued from a slaughterhouse in China.
According to a Facebook post, Cookie (who is also known as Mai Tai) is currently with a Wheaten Terrier rescue organization, awaiting placement in a foster home. If you’re in the market for a dog that kind of looks like an ewok, this may be your guy.
