Ropes and ladder were required to pull the animal from the water

Fire fighters from the station in Almoradí rescued a pregnant dog on Tuesday after it had fallen by accident into a canal. It happened at about 9pm when the animal was walking with the woman who owns it through an area next to the canal.

Since it was impossible to get out by itself the owner decided to call the Local Police. The officers who turned up could not get it out either because they did not have the necessary equipment, so they called the fire brigade. Two fire fighters managed to get the dog out of the water with the help of a ladder and some ropes. Fortunately there were no worse consequences.
