Animal advocates were outraged after a landowner initially refused to let an excavator rescue a dog trapped in a pipe.

The Miami County dog fell down an 80-foot pipe on its neighbor’s property Thursday afternoon.

An animal care officer brought in heavy machinery from Golliher Excavating to try to rescue the dog, but the landowner refused to let him dig.

The officer offered to use his equipment and fuel free of charge to rescue the dog. He even offered to fix the damage once the dog was freed.

The landowner refused, saying she didn’t want her drive way torn up.

The crews were able to convince the homeowner to allow a rescue. The dog is reportedly doing well
