Dog Saved by Doorbell

Henry is a 7-year-old border terrier who lives in Prestbury, UK. Earlier this week, he went down a rabbit hole and became stuck, unknown to his owner, Beverley Leonard. When she couldn’t find the dog, Leonard called the local fire department, but after looking for Henry for three days, the animal rescue unit had to abandon the search.

A crew member said that if Henry would just bark they would have much more chance. A distraught Beverley remembered that the one thing Henry did bark at was her doorbell. She raced home, ripped the door bell off her front door, grabbed the amplifier, raced back to the fields and played it into every rabbit hole they could find.

“It must have been just about the last hole in the last field, and we were about to give up, when we heard him,” said Beverley.

The rescuers sawed through a bush and then dug down about five feet to reach Henry. Despite four days wedged in a rabbit hole underground, Henry is now doing fine. -via Arbroath
