The pet-parent was growing desperate when his sweet pup Safira vanished from their home. It had appeared that Safira had vanished without a trace, and after several days of searching, her dad feared the worst.
It was not until the third day that he found her after hearing her cry for help that he was able to locate her. However, it was far from over.
About a mile from home, Safira fell down a 200-foot cliff and was stranded on a leaf-covered ledge about 80 feet below. The ledge had provided Safira with lifesaving oxygen, but now she was trapped on it with no way out.
Safira’s owner was deeply worried about her health and safety and didn’t know what to do. Safira’d been stuck without food and water for three long days, and he had no way of getting down to the ledge and rescuing her.
Out of desperation, he called the fire department, though he worried they wouldn’t want to spend their manpower and resources on saving a dog.
Fortunately, the Ituporanga Military Fire Department was more than willing to assist in saving the innocent dog’s life, and sent a team of firefighters to the scene as soon as possible.
The rescue wasn’t easy. They had to rappel down the steep cliff to reach the scared pup, but once they’d gotten her to safety, there was no doubt that it had all been worth it.
It seemed like Safira was never going to be able to stop thanking and kissing her rescuers, no matter how weak she was.
In an interview, one of the rescuers, Luis Fernando, revealed that this wasn’t the first time they’d been asked to rescue a pup, and added: “It is always worth our time”.
The pet dad of Safira was so thankful to the firefighters, and he is overjoyed to have her back in his arms. She is now safe, happy, and healthy, and will always be grateful to the heroes who saved her.
