The incredible moment a dog was reunited with its owner after more than two days underground was captured on video.
Flossie can be seen sticking her head out of the hole into the sun as a man carefully digs her up.
Although she’s a little nervous about being dragged to the ground, when she does get free, she’s clearly delighted to be reunited with owner Bracken Jelier, who had posted on Facebook to find out where she might be.
She suspected Flossie might have gone rabbit hunting and gotten lost, and that turned out to be the case – although she only walked as far as the neighbor’s garden in Crediton.
In her Facebook post, Bracken asked for help finding any rabbit holes in the area, and another dog was able to figure out where she got stuck.
Video shows her being found Thursday afternoon and then rescued by a member of the Mid Devon Hunt – after being buried underground for 56 hours.
Bracken updated those concerned about her pet with another post on Facebook: “We are delighted to say that Flossie has been found.
“It’s a very long story with some incredible coincidences that led to its being discovered after 56 hours underground.
“We are incredibly lucky to have her home and apart from being a little dehydrated and underweight she is doing absolutely fine.”
She added: “Thank you for all the incredible messages. We are overwhelmed by everyone’s support. We are also painfully aware that there are many people who never find their dogs.
“So we will forever be grateful that we were among the lucky ones.”
Sharing a photo of Flossie on a dog bed, she added, “As you can see, she’s really settled in very well at home!”
