A Dog That Fell Down A Deep Well Actually Sobs When Rescuers Come To Save Her

Tearjerker alert! This video was captured in a small village outside the city of Udaipur, in the western part of India, when a medium-sized black female dog somehow fell into a deep well. Somehow the dog’s barks and cries were heard, and rescuers from Animal Aid Unlimited India were called in to save what they described as a “heartbroken dog, desperate to be helped.”

Seeing what the team was up against, it’s kind of amazing anyone even found the dog to begin with, not to mention that the poor thing survived the steep fall — as the camera pans all the way down to the bottom of the well. Upon seeing her rescuers, the dog lets out sob-like howls in excitement, but her ordeal is far from over.

Using rope and a harness, the team carefully lowers one of their men down the hole — himself risking bodily harm or injury — until he finally reaches the wagging pup. After comforting the dog, now named “Ruby,” he wraps her in a blanket and is slowly hoisted back out of the well until he reaches the top, where another member of his team grabs her and brings her to safety.

With everything going on in the world, it’s nice to have validation now and then that there are good people out there. If you’d like to donate to Animal Aid Unlimited, click here.
