Dog Waits In Crumbling Well For Rescuers Brave Enough To Save Him

A street dog in India somehow found himself at the bottom of a deep, unstable well - with no way out. He waited, huddled up in a hole in the corner, for someone to finally take notice.

Animal Aid Unlimited received word about the dog and went to help. The dog was hiding, but when he saw people looking down on him he emerged ...

The walls of the well were crumbling, and it would be unsafe to lower someone down on a rope alone. But no one was willing to give up on the sweet dog. They knew they had to do anything they could to save him ... and so Animal Aid Unlimited enlisted a little help.

A crane was brought in, and one of the rescuers was slowly lowered down into the well.
