California Firefighters Come To The Rescue After A 13-Year-Old Blind Pup Fell Into A 15-Foot Deep Hole

“The dog was blind, and this is a construction zone. Confined space rescues are low-frequency and high-risk. There’s a lot of steps we need to do to make it as safe as possible– for not just the dog but also our rescuers,” explained Chad Augustin, the Pasadena Fire Chief.

In turn, Augustin’s team secured various pulleys and ropes in order to leverage one firefighter into the hole. Then, it took the firefighter about twelve minutes to reach Cesar, place him in a harness, and safely bring him back above ground.

Thankfully, Cesar’s shock wore off once the firefighter arrived, and the pup emerged uninjured. Then, he just shook off some construction dust and dirt before being reunited with Mary.

The Pasadena Fire Department has since shared footage of the miraculous rescue effort on Twitter, along with photos of Cesar and the fire crew after he was safely extricated. There, community members have shared their immense gratitude for the first responders’ work in saving Cesar.

“So sweet. So happy he was returned safely to his owner. God bless you, firefighters, for rescuing this darling dog,” wrote one Twitter user.

“A beautiful story about good people helping this little dog. So heartwarming!” added a second user.

“Thank you all for saving this pooch!” said a third.
