No one knows for sure how long this little dog had been trapped there, clinging to life deep inside an uncovered sewer near a wooded area in Kansas City, Missouri — but one thing is certain.
She never gave up hope. Fortunately, a man passing by the spot heard her cries for help, and knew he had to answer that call.
Here’s the dramatic moment she realized that all was not lost:
“This is a remarkable Good Samaritan story that really embodies the ‘right place at the right time’ saying,” rescuers from KC Pet Project later wrote.
After making the discovery, the man sought out their assistance in bringing the frightened dog to safety.
