Trapped in a cement hole in Fresno, California, a dog named Leroy craned his head up to the sky, looking for someone who might be able to help.
Soon, Leroy locked eyes with a photographer taking pictures in the abandoned lot near the trench. Concerned for the dog’s safety, the photographer contacted animal control.
Animal control personnel quickly arrived at the scene, climbed into the hole and lifted Leroy to safety. Despite his ordeal, the friendly pup remained calm and adoring, thrilled to have people looking out for him.
The rescue group Compassion Without Borders took Leroy in, and staff members were shocked by the resilient dog’s amiable disposition.
“He was very sweet from the moment he was rescued,” Christi Camblor, Compassion Without Borders executive director and cofounder, told The Dodo.
