Puppy rescued after trip on top of train

A black Lab puppy is lucky to be alive after being rescued from the top of a train car after a journey that had a mysterious beginning.

The Parker family helped spot which car in the long train the puppy was on.

The Liberty Fire Department arrived and used a ladder to reach the pup on the top of the Hunter boxcar. The cars carried double-stacked containers, making them about 20 feet-tall.

The wayward puppy has been taken in by his heroes, the Parker family.

They have named the puppy Boxcar Hunter, or Boxy for short. He has an appointment for his first vet visit in about a week, but he seems healthy — and happy to be off the train.
