The husky was rescued from the drain after an officer opened the drain cover and entered. The rescue operation took 30 minutes.

Hamilton added, “It was a little hard because he’s such a big dog, and picking him up, we don’t know his behaviour taking him above the storm drain. But he was a very good boy, and I think he was just excited to get out.”

The department even shared a rescue video on Facebook with the caption, “This morning, we received several calls regarding a husky that was trapped inside a sewer drain. The husky Sebastian had always wanted to meet the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but instead, he found himself face to face with a couple of animal control officers! The spunky Sebastian is now safe and sound at our facility and is eagerly waiting to be reunited with his owners! We love happy endings!”
