They Began Losing Hope After Dog Remained Buried 12 Ft Underground For 72 Hours

Charlie, a Patterdale Terrier, wandered off in a deserted field during fox control, and ended up falling through a muddy hole.

When his owners realized he was missing, they quickly located him through his tracking collar.

However, their hearts sank when they realized that Charlie was buried under a 12.5-ft deep rocky hole.

The owners immediately informed the local rescue team at “Angus Glens Moorland Group”. After assessing Charlie’s situation, the group requested R K Services in Montrose to lend them a rock breaker for this mammoth rescue mission.

Just hours after Charlie went missing, the rescuers began digging through the rock with an optimistic attitude.

But even after digging for 3 straight days, but there was still no sign of Charlie.

The rescuers began losing hope as they knew it was unlikely for a dog to survive in the suffocating underground for such a long period.

After 74 hours of breaking and removing rocks, the rescuers finally heard the faint whimpers of Charlie. With renewed hope, they began digging further.
