I'm from Europe living in Thailand. You might remember when i took sick stray dog from the street as my new dog.

Today I took my GDS and mentioned ex-stray for a run through jungle. Around abandoned government building. Which is also home to stray dogs. Passing by building we heard a lot of crying and barking. And that's how we found this little fella stuck in sewers by his head.



He was lucky that I found him - but there's unfortunately not happy ending. I bring my tools and I spend there around 3 hours trying to free him. Then it got really dark and I had to left. Because I couldn't even see my hands. He is stuck there to this moment... . And he will be entire night. :| :| :| Poor guy/girl.



As you can see cover of these sewers is from very heavy concrete blocks, that are cemented into place. You can't just lift middle one. You have to start working from the side. It's extremely difficult and there's not enough space to even take a swing with a hammer.

He is standing on his back legs and is supporting himself of the wall by his front legs. So I hope he will be able to breath all night and won't suffocate. He refused to drink and eat.

Tomorrow first thing in the morning I'm going back and I'll try to free him.

That is such a hard picture to view. I hope he gets through the night and you are a wonderful person for doing all you can. Maybe it was best that he didn't drink or eat in the predicament that he's in. My thoughts and prayers for this guy and your efforts.

Edit: I just thought Of something that might help when you go back in the morning: bring some oil, anything that you can saturate around the hole and or his neck if he isn't struggling. The vibration of working the concrete along with the oil may be just enough for his head to slip back in if there is a solid floor under him and not in danger of falling further down in a tunnel.

OMG Can the authorities help? You'll need to cut that concrete or break it up in some way from the other side.

It's a girl!!!

Very hungry/thirsty/uncooperative/smelly girl. I ripped a lot of these concrete blocks, made a space between block where she was caught and pulled her down. :grin2::grin2::grin2:

So Andy to the Rescue! Thanks for all the work you did for this ungrateful little, uh, girl... This couldn't have been the most comfortable area for you to work in either..

That was disturbing to see. Good job and may your compassion be rewarded.

Andy you are seriously an angel :) I am so glad you were able to get her out. Nice work! What will you do with her now? I have a friend who is in Thailand a lot, he is always posting pictures of the dogs there. He has made a few "friends". Good luck and keep us posted!

Wow, so good to hear this! You're my hero and you are certainly hers. She is evidently one adventurous pup to get herself in that situation. I wasn't at all sure it would be a good outcome, and am so glad to hear that it was. I imagine you are both exhausted now. You both deserve something special today and for many days to come.
