A distressed dog was recently rescued from a sewer in Lisbon, Portugal by a group of teenagers who heard the dog barking as they walked by a closed school playground.
“At first we couldn’t see where the dog was but then we just saw this head on the pavement looking at us and realised that the rest of the dog was underground…It was impossible to pull it out through the tiny hole so we called the local animal rescue service who turned up – and who in turn alerted the fire service.” -One of the teenaged rescuers
According to an Animal rescue spokesman who was involved, there’s no indication as to how the dog got into the sewer, but the rescue operation took an hour and involved four firemen because the hole had to be carefully widened where the dog was caught in order to free it. It’s also been stated that the animal never would have escaped by himself.
The owner was delighted to have his friend back, and reported that he had been out on a walk with his dog when it suddenly vanished and could not be found anywhere.
