Dog rescued after falling in a well

- Henrico County, Virginia, USA -

A few days ago Henrico County Fire Station 1 was called to assist Animal Protection with a dog who had fallen down a dry well on Greenview Drive.

The responding crew at the scene found a well 35ft deep but only 4ft wide.

Rescuers had to enlarge the opening, and through a rope system set up in a tree, a firefighter was lowered to rescue the pup.

The station’s Facebook post says that the well was dry and cold and that it had possibly been covered over with soil, brick and stone.

The pup appeared to be calm during the whole rescue operation and once out of the well he was reunited with his family.

Thank you all for rescuing this pup!
