Blind Dog Rescued From Well After Surviving On Thrown Scraps For Month

Truly, a Christmas miracle.

Posted on

According to the international rescue group, Harmony Fund, Christmas had apparently been searching the field for food when he fell down the 26-foot well.

When international animal rescuer Fahrudin Caki Bravo and his friend, Ratko Koblar, heard of the dog's plight, they raced over to pull him out, and captured it all on video.


In an interview with ABC News, Laura Simpson, founder of Massachusetts-based Harmony Fund, said the dog was in surprisingly good shape considering his plight.

"The blindness of course is from a pre-existing condition, but he's now in foster care and we're hoping he can find a home there he's loved and respected in the way he should be," she said.

Simpson went on to describe Christmas as a gentle dog "with a very sweet, and forgiving disposition."
