A stray puppy is safe after a close brush with death. The puppy and his mother were living under a church slated to be demolished in Houston, Monday.

The Citizens for Animal Protection coaxed the mother dog from under the church with a trap Sunday night, but the puppy refused to budge until yesterday morning, just in the nick of time.

The pooch, named Mister Handsome, wandered out to its mother and then into one of the cages for some food. Now, they're getting help finding a new home.
