This is the heartwarming moment a dog was rescued from a five-foot sinkhole – after another dog alerted its owner that she was trapped.

Macy (top), an 11-year-old golden retriever, had been stuck inside the hole in Streator, Illinois [USA] for nearly 24 hours after falling in last Friday, February 11.

But she wasn’t found until a chocolate labrador, named Wrigley, located her the next day in Marilla Park and alerted his owner by barking.

G’wan the Wrigley.

Rescue foal Ziggy, in Laragh, Co Wicklow

On Saturday 27th February a pony was seen loose on Maoilin Hill, near Laragh [Co Wicklow]. Upon inspection it turned out that it was a foal presumed born late last year, maybe August /September.

But we were unable to get near him as he seems to not have been handled before, so we left out hay and feed in a hope that we could get its trust over a few days and catch it later, but sadly the foal got a fright and went off into the forest where we lost sight of him.

6 days later and a lot of lost sleep, he was seen again.

So I put together a group of people and two very quiet horses that he would follow and managed to get him to a yard where we could then get him in to a stable, which is where he is now.

We have named him Ziggy. We could really do with getting him a forever home, but failing that we would be interested in a sponsor, maybe a company like Glanbia, or Gain or such like so we can keep him ourselves without too much a financial burden.
