'Underdog' rescue operation

Here are some pictures of the rescue operation of the dog that fell into the Big Hole in Kimberley.

Kimberley - A man who rescued a dog that fell into the Big Hole in Kimberley has adopted her, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) said on Saturday.

SPCA inspector Marius van der Westhuizen said the dog's owner Chris Baadjies signed the dog over to them.

"[John] Seeley has formally adopted the dog that he rescued," said Van der Westhuizen.

The dog was rescued by Seeley last week.

ER24's Christo Venter said the dog had been in the hole for a couple of days.

"The dog had been swimming around in an attempt to find a way out and fortunately found a ledge to rest at, which probably saved him..." he said.
