Married couple in the southwestern Russian city of Voronezh, Aleksandra and Vadim, heard barking and crying coming from underneath their porch steps.
It turns out that a pregnant dog had become entombed alive under heavy stone blocks after negligent workers decided to repair the pavement without worrying about getting the dog out.
Aleksandra told a local news station, “I don’t believe that they just failed to notice the dog. It’s not a hamster. The workers probably just didn’t want to make and effort and retrieve the animal. The neighbors also proved to be indifferent. They understood the poor creature got trapped. But who wants to waste their time, getting their hands dirty? No one cared.”
Sadly, the dog lost her puppies after being deprived of food and water for 2 days, but she has been passed onto a shelter and is reportedly recovering well.
