An elderly dog, who is both deaf and blind, fell down a 40-foot well in Maryland this week. The 11-year-old dog, named “Sam,” was saved thanks to the efforts of the Prince Frederick Volunteer Fire Department.

On Tuesday, the volunteer fire department posted photos of the rescue effort to its Facebook page, along with a brief description of what transpired:

At 1749 hours, Company 2 was alerted to the 1900 block of Joanna Ct for a Confined Space Rescue. Units arrived to find a dog down a 40 foot well. Crews set up a rope system with the Tower and safely removed the dog. Company 2 operated for 40 minutes.

 

Thanks to the team’s efforts, Sam was safely extracted from the well and returned to his anxious family. The dog’s owner offered words of thanks on the volunteer fire department’s Facebook page, along with an explanation about how the dog fell into the well:

Thank you so much to PF Volunteer fire dept. ! While repairing our well, our 11 year old cocker Sam ( he’s deaf and blind) fell 40 feet. Quick and compassionate responders saved our Sam!
Thank you so much for your caring attitudes and professional work ethic. Thanks Mark for the subtle smile which let me feel everything would be ok.

    so glad to see they saved the dog.but cover that well bigtime and always be outside when the dog goes outside to the bathroom.so you will not have it happen again at all.
