Police in Phoenix helped with a 10-hour rescue of a puppy after they found the dog trapped in a pipe at a home where they were executing a drug-related search warrant.

After the long rescue effort, the puppy was extracted from the pipe and reunited with its mother.

The Arizona Humane Society determined the puppy was 1 to 2 weeks old and a pit bull terrier mix. Officers also found two puppies that had died, and a grown female dog that survived. All the dogs were believed to be strays, the Associated Press reports.

After the ordeal, it is unclear whether the officers found any drugs.
