No one was sure how long the dog had been in the well.
It's possible she had been swimming for hours before a villager noticed her and made an emergency call to Animal Aid Unlimited.
Without hesitation, Animal Aid's rescue team rushed to the scene. There, they found the exhausted dog clinging to the side of the well. She was a long way down, and the rescue team knew the task at hand was not an easy one.
Working quickly and carefully, they harnessed a rescue worker and lowered him down into the well. Once he reached the water, a large net was lowered down on a separate rope and the rescue worker grabbed the dog and loaded her into the net. She seemed to know he was there to help and didn't struggle.
Once both man and dog had been lifted to safety, the dog was rushed back to Animal Aid's shelter for examination and treatment.
Watch this heroic rescue unfold:
Thanks to Animal Aid, this dog has a future. She will live out her days at the Animal Aid rescue facility in the company of other rescued animals.
