Dogs are just like us, each of them is unique. Some dogs barely want to leave their beds, others are too excited and you see them jump everywhere and chase almost everything moving. My dog loves to run free, but I know when I call her she will immediately come back to me.
One family from Saskatchewan, Canada went through a heartbreaking experience when one day their Labrador Bruno just disappeared.
The owners, John and Cindy Billesberger, looked for Bruno everywhere but they couldn’t find him. Days turned to weeks and still no sign of him; the family was worried.
When Bruno had been away for 27 days, the family were outside walking their two other dogs half a mile from their home when their other dogs started to act strange in a particular area.
John decided to investigate further.
That’s when he discovered a 10-foot-deep hole he’d never seen before, likely an old abandoned well. And at the bottom lay Bruno, the Huffington Post reports.
Bruno was injured and very weak, so weak he couldn’t bark.
The poor pooch had several cuts and bruises and several of his wounds were infected. He’d even worn the pads off his paws trying to climb out.
John called on his son to help, who hung onto a rope while he lowered himself into the well to rescue Bruno. They rushed him to the nearest vet where Bruno was given an IV and his injuries were assessed.
He was incredibly malnourished, dehydrated and had anemia. In a way he was fortunate to have fallen in a well as the water reserves helped to keep him alive.
Thanks to skilled veterinarians, Bruno quickly recovered.
We’re so happy that Bruno came back to his family and he’s doing just fine. He was lucky to have his dog brothers. If it hadn’t been for them, we can’t imagine what the end would have been.
