Blind, elderly dog named 'Christmas' rescued from a well

(FOX News) - Two kind-hearted rescuers saved Christmas.

A blind, elderly dog who’d been trapped alone in a Bosnian well for weeks was saved by a pair of animal advocates, according to a Facebook post from The Great Animal Rescue Chase & Harmony Fund, which also posted video of the rescue. The hound-liberating heroes named the dog Christmas.

“Surprisingly, the dog is in fairly good, physical condition,” Laura Simpson, found of the Harmony Fund, told ABC News. “The blindness of course is from a pre-existing condition, but he’s not in foster care and we’re hoping he can find a home where he’s loved and respected in the way he should be.”

The dog had apparently been searching for food in a field when he fell down the 28-foot well. Village children had thrown food to the stuck pup, but no one had tried to get him out.
