The Gozo Civil Protection Department rescues dog from well
|Email item||Print item||
Last Monday evening our Kelb tal-Fenek fell into an uncovered well on the outskirts of San Lawrenz. Luckily the well water was only a couple of metres below the ground, and she was able to bark to let us know of her location whilst treading water. However, the well head was far too small for anyone to get inside without risking collapsing the stone boulders around the well on top of her.
The Gozo Civil Protection Department were called and did a wonderful job – they turned up promptly, and without a fuss managed to slip a noose around our dogs head and gently lifted her out of the well. Our dog was completely unharmed, and after a quick shake, was soon running around as if nothing had happened. We would like to thank everyone at Gozo Civil Protection Department for saving our dog’s life.
