Dogs truly are resilient creatures. However, it doesn’t mean that they don’t get hurt or injured. Dogs may have great instincts and impeccable senses but they can still stumble and get involved in an accident.
A German Shepherd named Lexi was playing hide and seek with her owner at the south end of Fontana, California. Lexi loves playing hide-and-seek but took things too far when she found a hiding place her owner would have difficulty finding her.
While looking for a place to hide, Lexi stumbled into a hole. She accidentally fell 12 feet into the hole that was filled with dead tree branches and other debris. The hole was too deep that Lexi was unable to get out.
When her owner finally found her, she panicked and didn’t know how to get her beloved dog out of the hole. Thankfully, after she calmed down, she called the emergency services to help her.
Animal Service Officers had difficulty getting Lexi out since they didn’t have the tools necessary to do the job. They asked for assistance from firefighters to help them rescue Lexi from the hole.
Soon after the firefighters arrived on the scene, they got all the necessary equipment ready to help rescue Lexi. The firefighters carefully lowered one of their members down the hole using a rope. After safely reaching the bottom of the hole, the firefighter secured Lexi using a rope and the other firefighters carefully pulled Lexi out of the hole.
Surprisingly, Lexi was uninjured. She was a little shaken from the entire experience but she’s just happy that she’s finally out of that hole and back in the arms of her mom. Lexi’s mom is extremely grateful that her fur baby is fine. She’s also thankful for the fire department and the Animal Service Officers who came to assist her. Here’s a video featuring Lexi’s daring rescue.
