It took about an hour for the firefighters to get all the puppies out of the deep hole their mother had dug.

The puppies were about two weeks old, and miraculously, they were all alive. Their mother, who was nicknamed Blacky, had clearly buried her puppies in the dirt to save them. Thanks to Blacky’s quick-thinking, all nine puppies were okay!
