Rescuing a ten-pound Yorkshire terrier who found herself in a very precarious situation stuck in a pool's drain pipe in a north Texas neighborhood on Wednesday took more than a few canine wiggles and a shake to get free reported nbcdfw.

The adorable little Yorkie named Chloe dashed out of her home on Wednesday as her owner opened the door. Curious little Chloe just couldn't walk away, and on her second round of sniffing out the strange smell, found herself in a not so compromising position.

When the frantic family couldn't get Chloe free, they called authorities. In came Dallas-Fire-Rescue, who after surveying the situation, had to resort to some technical equipment to help locate the lost little canine.

A special camera was used to find Chloe's exact position; then came a few cuts here and there into the PVC pipe until one of the brave men in blue managed to rescue the little brown mop of mischief.

Chloe's two young human companions were ecstatic. Hopefully Chloe has learned from her harrowing experience, but once again, let's take a few moments to thank our brave firemen all over the world for their dedication in saving both human and animal lives.
