Dizzy’s owner and a friend with a digger saved her from a rabbit hole near Burlish Top, Worcestershire, after quick thinking. In Burlish Top, Worcestershire, England, her owner was reunited with a deaf dog who had been trapped in a rabbit hole for 30 hours.
Dizzy, a hearing-impaired cockier spaniel, owned by Duncan Flowers, went missing on Sunday after she was out walking.
Flowers, a self-employed roofer, told the outlet that Dizzy disappeared into a hedgerow between two fields on the way back home. “I went around the other side, and she had vanished.”
Flowers couldn’t find Dizzy despite trying for several hours. She took to social media to seek assistance in locating the pet.
People began calling Flowers left, right, and center, offering to assist in her hunt, according to Flowers. Around 70 people searched the Rifle Range and Blackstone with torches from 5 p.m. until almost midnight, but no one was able to locate her.
Flowers almost gave up on Dizzy’s search when he returned to where he last saw him and saw a rabbit hole in the field. Flowers quickly called a friend with a JBC digger for help, hoping that’s where Dizzy was.
Despite not knowing she was inside, Flowers told SWNS, “I had just an inkling that she might be there.”.
Approximately two and a half hours after she had gone missing, Dizzy popped out of the hole after digging 20 feet into it, reuniting with Flowers.
The footage from the rescue shows Dizzy being lifted from the hole after a long wait and reunited with Flowers, who is overcome with emotion. Onlookers can be heard cheering over the successful rescue.
Flowers described the experience as a miracle and said, “I couldn’t believe it.”
Flower said he carried Dizzy home, wrapped her in his coat.
Her tail was wagging as she ran directly into the house, and she began eating and drinking as soon as I opened the door,” the loving dog dad said. “She’s so happy to be back home.”
Thankfully, Dizzy did not suffer any injuries aside from some jitters.
