Video footage shows the podenco harnessed to the Bomberos de Almeria crew member who bravely went down the deep shaft to get the dog, the firefighter scrambling to get a foothold on the loose earth as his colleagues winch them both to safety.

The Almeria Centro Zoosanitario Municipal animal shelter reported that the podenco, appropriately named ‘Pozo’ (the Spanish for well), survived last week’s experience unscathed and has now been adopted by a family.

Comments posted on social media praised the firefighters for their sterling rescue efforts, but also called for these kinds of wells to be covered due to the potential risk to be people and animals.
