The Pasadena Fire Department said a search and rescue crew was being assisted by firefighters from Arcadia, South Pasadena and Glendale when the dog was reported in distress Tuesday night.
21 September (News) — Firefighters in California rescued a blind dog that escaped from its owner’s yard and fell into a 15-foot hole at a neighboring construction site.
The 13-year-old dog’s owner, who lives next door to the site, said the blind dog, named Caesar, escaped through a hole in her fence.
Firefighters used a system of ropes and pulleys to lower a rescuer into the 3-foot-wide hole. The fireman was able to outfit Caesar with a harness and heave him back onto solid ground.
Caesar appeared unharmed and was reunited with his owner at the scene.
