They weren't going to let that happen to the second dog.
It was dark, but the rescue team made their way to the sewer, where they spotted the little guy.
As they approached, the dog got frightened and ran further down the tunnel.
They followed to find him hiding behind a chair.
He struggled to get away, but eventually one man was able to gain a bit of trust.
Through his dirty, wet fur, it was easy to see that he hadn't eaten for quite some time.
The moppy little fellow finally allowed the man to pick him up and take him back to the rescue house.
The transformation was quick. It wasn't long before his mood started to brighten.
A little human contact goes a long way.
He was so hungry that the rescuers had to give him "bitty"-sized foods to stop him from eating too fast.
That's how one of the rescuers came up with his new name.
Bitty was ready for the next step.
