LA County firefighters spent four hours working to rotate the paw out of the drain. A veterinarian sedated the pup beforehand.

"We used bath gels and some soaps to help with the lubrication of sliding the dog’s foot out," LA County Fire Capt. Kirk Nelson said.

NBC4 has been told that the dog, Jesse, was doing OK as of Friday morning.
