SPARTA, New Jersey -- First responders jumped into action to save a dog stuck in a storm drain in Sparta, New Jersey, over the weekend.

Hubbell the dog found his way into a drainage pipe on Sunday around 7 p.m., but apparently was unable to find his way back out.

With the help of Sparta firefighters and plenty of coaxing from his owners, Hubbell made it out safely.

Hubbell was checked out and is said to be OK after being rescued -- however, he was in great need of a bath!
