Captured in a gripping video, a group of commuters sprang into action to aid the frightened four-legged companion, who had slipped into the void between the train and the platform.
"A dog fell under the train track, the train stopped, and people jumped in for help," the video caption read.
"I was on my way from Partick to Glasgow Queens street, I was getting off the train when from what I know the dog slipped and fell through the gap on the train," Imad Nemili told Newsweek.
"Just like everyone else, I was so shocked and worried that the train driver won't hear us. We did our best to shout and ask them to stop—they did and came to help out."
Ultimately, a duo of passengers succeeded in extricating the dog from its predicament, raising it to safety.
"We're pleased to see that the dog was retrieved safe and well," said ScotRail's customer operations director Phil Campbell. "We take this opportunity to remind customers to keep well back from platform edges when trains are arriving and leaving the station, and to keep hold of pets, pushchairs, and other belongings when getting on and off the train."
