In Georgia, firefighters rescued a Labrador puppy trapped down a 75-foot well. An older Labrador alerted rescuers to the puppy’s situation!
On Sunday morning, the Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services crews were dispatched to a home on Fletcher Drive.
The rescuers arrived and found a yellow Labrador pup, who appeared to be two to three months old, trapped in the 75-foot well.
Jose Santillan, a resident of the home where the well is located, said the yellow Lab and another black Labrador showed up at his home on Saturday and “appeared to be strays.”
“The black Labrador was barking this morning and I went outside to find that the yellow Labrador had fallen into the well,” Santillan told fire crews.
The rescuers constructed a tripod above the hole, and lowered firefighter Brendan O’Brian down into the well. In just a few moments, O’Brien resurfaced from the well with the poor pup in hand.
The Labrador pup was turned over to the firefighters, who administered oxygen. Despite the fall,the puppy appeared to be in good shape, and was later handed over to the Cherokee County Animal Shelter.
Santillan said he’d be interested in adopting of both Labs.
“If the owners of the dogs are not located, we would be interested in adopting both dogs,” he said.
