ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. -- Adams County firefighters rescued a 2-week-old puppy from a dryer vent on Sunday.

The puppy can't see yet and stumbled down the vent hole into the sub-flooring between the main floor and the crawl space, according to Adams County Fire Department.

Owner Estevan Cisneros realized something was wrong when he counted his dog's litter and realized there were only six puppies, not seven.

"We heard crying, so we came to check on them -- and she was in the hole," said Cisneros.

Firefighters were able to go into the crawl space and pull the puppy out from there after two hours of pulling apart the flooring and drywall.

The puppy is expected to be okay.
