A German Shepherd who reportedly calls a storm drain home has captured the attention of residents and animal control workers in a North Texas town.

News station WFAA reports neighbors have named the dog Cassie and first saw him about six months ago. So far, they haven’t been able to get him to stay out of the drain.

Grand Prairie Animal Services told the news station that Cassie isn’t stuck, as workers have seen the dog come and go from the drainage system. Animal services hasn’t been able to capture the dog either. 

“It’s good that we got the attention, but we also need people to understand that we do have it under control,” Danielle Tate, animal service manager for Grand Prairie, told WFAA.

Animal services said they’re working with one neighbor who has built enough trust with Cassie to hand feed him. Tate is discouraging neighbors from trying to lure the dog out and to let animal services rescue him. 

Neighbors however, told WFAA they are worried about Cassie and will continue to monitor him.
