Tears are flowing in North Carolina as Charlotte firefighters rescued a puppy from a sewage pipe and reunited the toy poodle with its family.

The puppy belongs to a mother. Her children, according to WBTV, had given it to her because she has cancer. The incident had one of her children choked up with emotion.

The poodle's name is MJ, and is named after the children's mother.

Firefighters pulled the puppy to freedom after about two hours of work.
