This must be the most improbable rescue of the year. Having seen the video a couple of times already, I still marvel at the dog’s intelligence and perseverance. Yes, it is inspiring!
So, somehow a sandy colored dog had managed to plunge down a deep well. When people found him, they threw a rope down in what seemed to me at first to be a hopeless effort. I mean, what is a dog to do with a rope — grab it with his paws?!
Well, it quickly turned out that the rescuers knew exactly what they were doing, although it is probably very much possible that they were simply dealing with a very smart canine.
In any event, the clever dog immediately grabbed hold of the rope with his teeth and scrambled up the well’s brickwork, but only to slip and fall again and again, as it neared the top.
But the most amazing thing is that the dog never gave up — each time he fell down, he just grabbed the rope and started climbing up once more. And the collective human and canine efforts eventually paid off.
In all, nine attempts to get the dog out of the well failed, but the tenth succeeded and a rescuer finally managed to grab hold of the canine’s collar and drag him to safety. The whole rescue operation lasted about three minutes and the dog seemed to be uninjured and was seen happily wagging his tail back on dry land. WOW!
1. The intelligent dog repeatedly managed to grab hold of the rope and scramble up the brick well.
2. A rescuer shouted words of encouragement to the terrified dog as it made is up way up the side of the well.
3. On nine occasions as the dog neared the top of the well, it plunged back down.
