Two policemen and a policewoman donning their fatigues responded to the distressed dog’s plea. Following the dog’s lead, the officers waded through the flooded water surrounding the locked house. They jumped over the compound wall and successfully rescued two stranded puppies from inside. After cleaning and caring for the puppies, they reunited them with the mother dog.

According to Naidu, floodwater inundated the area in front of the house at around 3 pm on Thursday. The police became aware of the dog’s distressing situation on Friday afternoon, approximately 20 hours after the dog lost contact with its puppies due to the floods.

Traffic on the national highway (NH 65) was disrupted and the nearby areas were inundated after the Munneru River, which is a tributary of the Krishna, got swollen due to the heavy rainfall in the state in the last few days.
