HICKORY, N.C. — The Hickory Rescue Squad made an unusual rescue Tuesday morning, saving eight newborn puppies that were stuck beneath an outbuilding.

A dog gave birth to the litter under a neighbor’s outbuilding, but because of the recent rain, she couldn’t get her puppies out.

The dog’s owner, fearing that heavy rain on the way Wednesday could drown the puppies, called for help.

Rescuers jacked up the building and pulled all of the puppies to safety.
