Golden Retriever Falls In Well, Firefighters Come To The Rescue
The family of Patton & Dickson had an old well behind their property. The well was abandoned for a very long time. Dickson was not aware of what had happened. While mowing the lawn, he found out that their dog, Calvin, was nowhere in sight. He immediately searched the whole of his house and called out the dog’s name several times.
Dickson then searched their property for signs of his dog. It was at this moment, two of his other dogs began going towards the well. Barking sounds could be heard coming deep down from the well. Understanding the seriousness of the situation, he quickly informed the Tualatin Valley firefighters.
The rescue team had a tough time pulling out the dog from the 30ft deep well. One of the rescuers went down the well using a rope and a tripod. After a great deal of effort, Calvin was finally taken out. He was handed over to his family and the dog seemed very happy.
Dickson stated that Calvin might have gone after a squirrel and fell into the well. Initial medical examinations were conducted on the Golden Retriever. After a preliminary hypothermia medication, the dog was released.
