Instead, they did some investigating, and when they discovered that the pup was right under their feet (but totally inaccessible), they did something even more amazing. Find out how this group of people saved an animal's life for no other reason than they could -- and see the miraculous recovery of an adorable (and very, very happy) pup who almost died without anyone knowing. This story will definitely put a smile on your face.
It was faint, but definitely there: Something was whimpering from below the surface, even though they couldn't see what it was.
The poor thing could have been easily missed, and he had no access to food or water. The people stuck around and fed her while they figure out what to do.
The whole time, people came in shifts to feed her and keep her company while she went through the ordeal.
They came with heavy machinery and rock removal tools to get her out. Finally, she emerged, and everyone finally got to see what this adorable pup looked like. Everyone was emotional, and they decided to name the pup Rook.
