A PUPPY has miraculously survived - after being flushed down the loo.
The one-week-old cocker spaniel was trapped in a waste pipe after little Daniel Blair decided he "needed a wash".
His mum feared the puppy had died but heard his desperate cries when she checked the drain.
Firefighters could not get to the pooch so drain specialists Dyno-Rod were alerted.
They used a special camera to find the pup lying in the filthy drain.
The pup was then gently nudged along the pipe until he was safe.
The puppy - named Dyno after his rescuers - has been given a clean bill of health by vets.
Daniel flushed Dyno after he got muddy when his twin brother Nicky took him for a walk.
Daniel's mum Alison, 40, of Northolt, Middlesex, said: "I never thought a dog could survive being flushed down the loo. He's a real little fighter."
Dyno-Rod man Will Craig, 22, from Harrow, Middlesex was cheered after the pup was saved.
He said: "When I got the call I thought it was a wind-up."
"I pushed him really slowly and watched the poor thing wriggling around.
"Eventually I pushed him far enough for the firemen to grab. Suddenly everyone started cheering."
Daniel has apologised and said: "Nicky got the puppy muddy and I had to give him a wash. I'm so, so sorry. I won't do it again."
