Owner of rescued dog says Casper is weak, but still fighting

RANCHO CORDOVA, CA - Casper, the miniature schnauzer that was pulled from a drainage pipe Wednesday night, remains under the care of a veterinarian, but his owner says the dog is a survivor.

"He's got a lot of fight in him still," said Joseph Hernandez.

Hernandez said his 15-year-old dog is dehydrated and receiving fluids intravenously. "He's weak, not ready to move around on his own," Hernandez said. But Casper's fever came down and that's a good sign.

The family believes Casper was stuck inside an 8-inch storm drain for several days.
