HOUSTON, Texas -- A Marine and a Houston SPCA worker rescued a dog from a storm drain Tuesday.
Retired Marine Adam O'Brien jumped into action when heard the dog was stuck.
It took about a half hour to convince the dog to come out of a smaller pipe and figure out a way to carry him to the surface.
O'Brien said it appears the dog was on the streets for several weeks.
Neighbors say it came from a house that the tenant abandoned a month ago.
The SPCA will be taking care of the dog until they can find it a home.
