While fireworks are just a pretty light show for humans, they are absolutely terrifying for animals like dogs and cats. And when one pug heard the shocking noise of fireworks exploding in the sky, she got so spooked that she ran away from home.
In her panic, the small pug named Olive ended up falling right into an old, abandoned well and ended up getting trapped inside since her little legs were too short to climb out. Since that November 4th night, Olive’s family has been searching the nearby area for their missing four-legged best friend.
However, once Olive was missing for over a week, they started fearing the worst since Olive wouldn’t be able to survive in the cold, wintery weather for much longer. However, 10 days after Olive went missing, fellow dog owner Nichola Jones had been out walking her 110-pound Rottweiler aptly named Bear when he suddenly started acting weird.
“I have been following story and we have been walking around the area trying to find Olive,” Jones said. “I was just walking past a hedgerow and Bear stopped. He wouldn’t move. So I went through the hedge and I found a well and looked down and there was this black pug. It was Olive, just looking up. I couldn’t believe it. I climbed in and pulled her out. I was worried she might have hurt herself, she was petrified, but then her tail wagged. She was fine.”
Jones put out a Facebook alert once she got home, and the very next day Olive was reunited with her 16-year-old owner Saffron Mackeson. “I’m so relieved. She’s lost a lot of weight but other than that she’s fine. We were so happy when we got the call,” Saffron said. “Bear is amazing. He is beautiful and has saved Olive’s life. He deserves a medal,” Saffron’s mom Zed Hale said.
“Bear is a hero, he’s a wonder dog. He was behaving in such a strange way. He is such a happy animal. He’s so special and this just tops it,”Jones said.
