Los Angeles County Firefighters along with the Urban Search & Rescue Team had to listen for barks in the dark as they worked for three hours to find Pablo, says Abe Serrano.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ABE SERRANO, LA COUNTY FIRE DEPARTMENT SAYING: "We just hoped that he wouldn't stop barking," "We wanted to hear him keep barking, because that's the only way we knew he was still alive." After cutting through concrete, firefighter Jay Sartoris, wearing a protective suit, was lowered down.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FIREFIGHTER JAY SARTORIS SAYING: "Unfortunately, the puppy was the same color as the mud, so it was kind of hard to hear and to see down there.

Luckily, he made one little bark, and I was able to pinpoint where he was.

He was basically just stuck in the mud.

And I just hollered to be ready for the dog" "Get ready for the dog!" Once back up in the sunshine, the next stop for Pablo was a much-needed bath to wash off all that muck.

Now, reunited with his family, Pablo's owners say they are amazed by how caring and patient the fire department was.
