FRESNO, Calif. -- A puppy named Timmy is recovering after he was rescued from a well in Fresno on Tuesday.
Timmy was missing, so the family went searching for him.
They found that the 6-week-old German Shepherd had fallen about 50 feet into an old well.
Firefighters safely got Timmy out of the 8-inch hole by lowering a knotted rope into it, looping the puppy's legs and torso and pulling him up.
Timmy is OK and the opening to the well has been sealed.
