A Dog Buried Under The Dirt For 18 Hours Gets Rescued. This Is Amazing!

May 15, 2015

In Joya Grande village, north-western Guatemala, an avalanche sent the mountainside crashing on to homes in the area. Jose Guerdola, one of the team members sent to search for survivors, said:

"We were looking for people and always, always was this faint sound, like a permanent rapping or tapping.

We assumed it was someone trapped in a cellar who was hitting a pipe. We dug and dug, and we sweated and slaved, and as we got closer we realized it was the barking of a dog.

When we broke through to where he was he jumped into our arms and licked our faces."

Local vets checked up on Afortunado (translates to "Lucky" in Spanish) and, apart from mild shock and dehydration, he is perfectly healthy.

Watch the incredible rescue below!
